CROWN COM­PLEX, SOUTH­BANK 9292 4751 BISTROGUIL­LAUMEMELBO­URNE.COM.AU

There’s a rea­son French cui­sine rules eter­nal and it comes in a bowl.

Guil­laume Brahimi’s onion soup is ev­ery rea­son to come (and re­turn) to this Crown stal­wart. For the deeply rich, sweet onion soup, with three thyme-topped gruyere crou­tons, is as swoon-wor­thy as they come.

When the Ni­coise salad fails to ex­cite, an ex­cep­tional John Dory on a bed of but­tery mush­rooms saves the day, fol­lowed by the city’s best lemon tart. Ser­vice is ex­cel­lent (with enough ac­cents to keep the Left Bank fan­tasy alive), with staff who work the hand­some room in im­pres­sive, fuss-free fash­ion. ■ Must-eat dish French onion soup ■ Cui­sine French ■ Chefs Guil­laume Brahimi & Graeme Mclaugh­lin ■ Price $$ ■ Book­ings Yes ■ Open Lunch & din­ner daily ■ In­sta­gram @bistro_guil­laume_mel­bourne
