Beverley Hudec, Manly Daily – December 28, 2018

Elanora Heights is home to a buzzy new brasserie thanks to Francophile David Singer and his longtime love of Paris’ backstreet eateries. Chic-but-not-showy, Frenchies is cosy and intimate, cocooned in black subway tiles, wall mirrors and half a dozen or so blingy chandeliers.

French Head Chef Fabian Oliveau comes with a raft of experience from Michelin fine-diners in the States. His seasonal menu embraces classics as well as contemporary and much more interesting French cooking. Start with a glass of Dom Perignon, before moving onto favourites like handcut steak tartare, twice baked cheese soufflé and duck confit. Dessert lovers can order a crème brûlée or share a warm apple tatin served with ice cream.

Sydney Unleashed – November 2018

For the finest French food and wine that Sydney has to offer…

‘Frenchies Brasserie is a beautiful restaurant where you can enjoy fresh produce and good service without it being uptight or expensive’.

Restaurant Shot
foodandtravel.com.au – December 2018

‘It is difficult to believe that we are still in the Northern Beaches region of Sydney rather than, perhaps, the Gare Nord in Paris, for instance.’

‘There is one other major component, though, and that is ambience, essential for a restaurant to succeed, and this too Frenchies provides with aplomb. Mais oui!’.
