PROFILED BY DE GROOTS MEDIA
The word Montrachet is a wine originating from the Burgundy region of France. Burgundy is famed for some of the best Chardonnay and white wines next to the Chateau d'yquem. Fittingly, the wine selection here is carefully chosen and each are representational of their regions in France. There is a great scope of wines to be sampled and enjoyed, the wine list having been comprised of approximately 500 drops, 90% of which are French. Simply ask for some assistance from the waitstaff to have the right one matched to your meal. Montrachet’s interior is reminiscent of a quaint and characteristic Parisian diner with traditional overtones and design. There is a magnificent bar that encompasses one half of the restaurant – this feature complements the other design elements that lend an ambience born out of a passion for European food and wine.

Owner and chef Thierry goes out of his way to ensure only the best, fresh local produce is sourced so his meals do the classics justice. Many of the dishes require a lot of tedious preparation and care, and the same sort of care should be taken when perusing the menu – although it’s hard to slip up. The eye fillet, cooked to your liking, is served abed green salad with home-made frites and accompanied with your choice of either green peppercorn or bearnaise sauce – the French-style chips are a hallmark side dish of Montrachet. Another item that will have the palate of any Queenslander watering is the bouillabaisse made with reef fish, scallops, fresh green prawns and Moreton Bay bugs, served in a rich seafood broth with aioli and garlic French toast. Montrachet is a fine restaurant well worth visiting. For those in groups or after something different, try the degustation menu.

CraigDeb:

What a beautiful french bistro. My partner and I were given a lovely table at the back of the bistro, when the bistro was full during our lunch, it was very quiet with good conversation easily held. The wine list is extensive, with an absolutely wonderful selection of French Wines. We settled for a French Bordeaux, as for the food, entree I had the Quail whilst my partner had the French Sausage. Both were full of favour and beautifully presented. For mains, we both elected to have the Venison. Beautifully cooked, wonderful sauce, tasty bacon salad, the main was just a wonderful meal. Desert, I had the short crust pastry tart with blanched peaches, whilst my partner nominated the chocolate ganache with raspberry coulis. To finish, we had a lovely cheeseboard, followed by coffee. In the almost 3 hours we spent at Montrachet, every minute was enjoyable, the food favoursome and the staff excellent. Our two waiters were swift, efficient yet unobtrusive, with both extremely knowledgeble about the food and wine that Montrachet offered. So if you have 3 hours to spend and you want to spend it in a really good food environment, my partner and I wholeheartedly recommend Montrachet. This was our first visit, it will not be our last, as it was French Fantastic.review  03/02/2012

Dining at the bar might not have been my preference but the service, food and close-up view of the skills of the staff made for a superb experience.review  11/05/2011
