Plat du Jour is your local French bistro, where we proudly serve authentic cuisine in a stylish setting.

“Plat du Jour” means dish of the day, and our menu offers regional French favourites, from Beef Bourguignon and Steak Frites, to Pan-Seared King Scallop and Côte de Porc. It’s all part of our classic approach to the country’s cooking, pairing simple Gallic dishes with a selection of French fine wines.

Casually dine inside our comfortable classic-chic locale, where high-ceilings, burgundy banquettes and tiled floors transport you back to the corner cafés of Paris. You’ll also love our indoor terrace, an airy affair ideal for every type of weather. Parked out front, a vintage Citroën serves a fine selection of drinks and pastries for those on the go.
