If you’re looking for a bit of indulgence, the sumptuous dishes exquisitely prepared at Lutece in Bardon may just satisfy your craving for a delightful dinner.  Choose from the four-course Lobster Celebration, the Canard à la Presse (Duck on the Press), the Winter Special lunch menu, or the Dinner by Sunset list. 

Lutece serves traditional French food with a modern twist, which is prepared so meticulously by Chef Romain Bapst. If it is your first visit then you need to try the creamy crab lasagne signature dish and the classic escargot. 

While the restaurant’s food choices are limited and change seasonally, you’ll appreciate the set menus because you just have to order and wait comfortably as every meal is served at your table, including the desserts.

Lutece also has a vegetarian and kids menu, as well as an extensive wine list to pair with your meals.

To be clear, Lutece isn’t cheap but you’ll get great value for your money. On Wednesday nights, a jazz band serenades diners. What’s more, the restaurant is located in the foothills of Mt Cool-tha with a great view of the western suburbs so be sure to reserve a seat by the window to make your dining experience even better.

“My husband and I went there this past weekend for lunch and the food was unbelievable. I highly recommend the Lobster Bisque and Crab Lasagna.  We will definitely be back! Great views too. Best french restaurant in Brisbane, by far.”
