French bistro in The Rocks: Baroque

TimeOut gave it a good review, so we went to Baroque Bistro on Saturday night. It was great: super food, good atmosphere, and excellent service. I’d recommend it to anyone. I’m also keen to go for pastries at breakfast.

Here’s the review I gave it on Qype:

Fantastic. New restaurant in the Rocks, doing well after featuring prominently in TimeOut magazine last month.

Going for a French bistro feel, sort of: the building’s been left a bit rustic, though there are modern art touches around. The menu is definitely French. Salade de betteraves rouges, cigare de chèvre frais, et noix; deux pièces de canard, petites betteraves, sauce à l’orange; crème brulée à la vanille, glace a la pistache. It goes on and on. And don’t worry, there’s English translations of everything as well.

Service was uniformly wonderful. We started with a pastis, had great starters (including the best black pudding I’ve ever eaten), and delicious mains (my duck two ways was perfectly cooked and flavourful). The wine list is top-notch. We shared a pretty good cheese board for afters, with port. And I couldn’t leave without an armagnac to finish the night. We shut the place down.

Starters are $13-19, mains are in the $25-$30 range mostly. I thought everything was wonderful.

Their website is excellent, listing events they have on, promotions, full menus (including all their wine and spirits) with pricing, and lots of pics.
