Paris is amazing, but if you cannot get there, Paris Go Bistro is close to the next best place to go for French cuisine. The waiting staff with their French accents were very attentive and helpful. My partner (who has been several times) once again enjoyed the Omellette aux truffes (Black Truffle Omellette) and I thoroughly enjoyed the Poivron Farcie... More

We visited Paris Go for a belated low key birthday dinner with my daughter and partner. The service was excellent- attentive but not intrusive. Our French waitress was lovely, and was very patient when we were to last people to leave the restaurant. We all chose one of the specials, handmade seafood gnocchi, chicken roulade, and a very tender lamb... More

Paris Go is our favourite restaurant in Melbourne. It offers many of the traditional French dishes and they are invariably delicious. The staff are all French speaking [in addition to English of course] and are consistently friendly and delightful. The ambience is excellent and the prices are quite reasonable. The restaurant is licenced but it also offers BYO.

I returned to Paris Go recently for a family celebration. On a busy Monday night, the one waiter coped admirably with the 18 guests. This very French restaurant never fails to impress. The five of us had the specials between us and each was delicious. The Pommes Frites are still some of the best going around and the salads were... More

What a great restaurant! Almost a Melbourne establishment that has been a feature of Rathdowne street for many years, I was expecting a tired, dated French restaurant. However, I was pleasantly surprised. A French chic bistro that is smart with discerning clients. Excellent service from well trained waiters. The food is amazing. Really tasty, interesting and a good mix of... More

A regular now at Paris Go for many years and the experience is always great. Love the food, the service have always found to be friendly and the fact I can bring a bottle of wine or two tops it off. Paris Go is great value and does not lack in quality to perceived other "noted" French restaurants in Melbourne.... More
