Tucked away in a sleepy side street in the heart of Buckhead, Anis is located in a converted house that has been renovated to look and feel like one of many little charming restaurants that you are likely to find in the Provence region in the south of France.

The menu is deeply rooted in the ingredients and aromas that give dishes from the French Mediterranean region their unique flavors.

Anis is comprised of an inside dining room and an outside patio area that is available for seating year round, and a charming little bar where you may enjoy a meal if you wish.

Widely known as one of the most romantic dining spots in the city, Anis is a great place to meet up with friends and can cater to large parties with ease.

Reservations are accepted and encouraged.

Join us for live Brazilian jazz on Thursday evenings.

Anis Cafe is a recent discovery for me. Have had an outstanding dinner (hosted two business colleagues) and this past weekend enjoyed a superb brunch with family. It is truly a unique and special spot, and now in my short list of 'go to' options.
Merci bien, Anis Cafe!

Our waiter was unruffled and helpful with our large group, providing extraordinary service. The food was absolutely outstanding, with a wonderful wine selection. We had a wonderful table, and the ambiance was warm and welcoming. To a person, every one of us said we would be back, and soon!

Anis is wonderful bistro tucked away in a leafy corner of Buckhead. The food is terrific and the atmosphere is funky/romantic, with a European touch. Wine list is extensive and well-priced.

We wanted some old world atmosphere to go with our delicious creme brulee, and Anis did the trick. We ate indoors in eclectic surroundings, but the covered patio is wonderful too whenever there's an Indian Summer day.

Absolute fabulous French restaurant- being French Canadian ourselves we appreciated the service from Seth and hospitality from the owner Arnaud. The food was excellent and genuine - prices are perfect and service just right. Will definitely return!

Went here for a birthday lunch, and the staff was very accommodating to the whole party. One of my youngest family members wanted a hot chocolate which they do not serve, but they whipped one up specially for her. Great place, great food!

Back in the day, we went at least once or twice a year. But since we now live in a different state, we hadn't been in 6 years. It was just as good as we remembered. Both food and service was excellent.

My wife and I enjoyed our date night dinner at Anis Cafe. Set in a small bungalow with eclectic decor the food, service and experience were on point. Parking can be a bit snug to get in and out of but it's well-worth the effort. The escargot dish was amazing - brilliant layering of flavors. We decided to skip the entrees and focus on the starters so we will be back to try the rest!!

We have always enjoyed Anis. This time our sides with our entrees were cold, tasteless and small in quantity. . My wife’s had the swordfish special that was overcooked and dry.

Service was very slow. We had to actively seek out our server to place our order, for drink refills and for the check. I found it odd since the restaurant wasn’t very busy.The food was above average, but a little pricey for the value.

We have dined at Anis many times and have never been disappointed. My wife and I shared mussels to start, then both had the duck breast special which was outstanding. That couples with a nice bottle of Vacqueyras made the dinner special. We dined outside, but the outdoor dining area is perfectly heated and was full of comfortable diners.

I ordered coquille st. jacques and it was not the traditional that I expected--scallops in a creamy wine sauce. The scallops were served without sauce on top of a couple of mushrooms.

We were a table of seven, celebrating a friend's 94th birthday. Every one of us felt that our total experience (and every detail of it) was truly outstanding. The Sunday Brunch menu was extensive but not expensive. Of course, all of the food was interesting and delicious. The "big surprise" was how perfect the service was— thoroughly attentive without being at all intrusive, always (and in all ways) kind and helpful even for some quirky requests (e.g., an order of soup "to share"; serving the birthday cake that a guest brought... with no extra charge!) Anis Cafe & Bistro is comfortably awesome!

If you’re looking for an authentic and delicious French meal in a cozy bistro atmosphere, this is it! The ambiance is intimate but the lively and artistic decor keeps it from being boring or stale. Don’t let the casual vibe fool you...the service and food are stellar. The servers are attentive, not cloying. The menu offers everything you could ever want from French fare and the wine menu more than adequate. As stated, the food is certainly top-notch, no fussiness here. The trout was literally the best trout dish I’ve ever had! My parents have been regulars for years, and now I will be as well!

Anis is such a lovely experience, the welcome, the servers, marvelous cocktails, I had a manhattan and my companion had a martini (Cheers indeed), dinner of salmon over roquefort risotto was unique and delicious. Our waiter explained everything ...who ever heard of laughing bird shrimp? Now, we know. The wine was superb and dessert of gateau de chocolate was as good as any I've had in Atlanta. There was one slight annoyance, we were crowded into a tiny 2 top even though there were 4 tops available. Too bad they were not more accommodating in our request for more room. Still, and over all Anis gets 5 stars from me!

Still the best neighborhood "default" restaurant for lunch meetings. Warm, welcoming, friendly....and an easy menu. Nothing fancy or over the top - just good, flavorful, and appealing.

Very good restaurant. Go early to avoid a very high noise level -- particularly in the brick floored downstairs seating area.
