Like its Crown Resort stable mate Rockpool, Bistro Guillaume rocks the classics and sees no need to follow trend or fashion to achieve excellence. Its signature roast chicken with rosemary jus and Paris mash is still the best roast chook in town. But this is more than a one chook story. BG’s country style terrine, In-house smoked salmon with dill cream and steak tartare – made with Dandaragan organic beef, no less – are rock-star good. The precision cooking continues with Chateaubriand with green pepper sauce and a plate-lickable snapper and mussel pie. Both dishes are for two. Make sure you order the watercress salad with blue cheese, especially with the chook and steak dishes: its something of a signature. And while you won’t find them on the menu, ask for the crab sandwiches. These elegant crustless sangers are perfect bar food with a glass of chablis.

The wine list has something for everybody: from big bucks French titles to well-priced Australian wines and everything in between. The champagne list is impressive.

With views over the resort pool and a stylish fit-out, Bistro Guillaume is romantic, polished and hugely enjoyable.
