About Anis Cafe and Bistro

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.

We had a wonderful meal, everything top notch and the warm French bread and butter are amazing! We were in town for just one night and selected Anis Cafe because we had been there before. We don't regret our choice!!

Holy brunch the menu was great. They need to update their online brunch menu because we almost didnt go. Good thing we tried it because the menu was rather expansive. Crepes, omelettes, sandwiches, other specialties. Enjoyed the cocktails as well. Will be back fro brunch.

We eat at Anis all the time but unfortunately our last meal was not good The fish which we always get and love did not taste fresh and was very fishy. The service was excellent! We usually have such a great meal and it’s always consistent but unfortunately this last time was a disappointment.

We've eaten here multiple times but this last visit was a bit disappointing. Not sure if there was a change of management or chef but staff were a bit aloof. Food was only fair at best with no sauces.

we loved it all, except that mom did not appreciate that the wait staff was dressed very casually. I think it may have taken something away from the special occasion and did not match the overall feel of the restaurant.

Fresh delicious food, wonderfully prepared. Service was good, although our server seemed a bit rushed at a time when the restaurant was not full. The menu for brunch is varied, offering lunch fare as well as breakfast items, and the French bread is superb.

Parking is awful. Even with valet. I ordered salad Nicoise. Terrible. Tuna was not good, lettuce wilted, just a glob of salad dressing dumped on it. Put me down as a no show, even though I said I was with Open Table. Waitress was very good. Valet had a tough job parking cars. Did the best he could.

We have always had great experiences here. Food was great and service is unbeatable. Was happy to get a Scofflaw IPA and the wine selected was also very good. The parking can be a little tight if you don't valet, so take that into consideration in your trip plan.

The food here is amazing and comes out very quickly. The wine list is extensive, but it would be benifical if there were some notes or if someone took a minute to talk with us about it. We felt like our server was upset because we were only 2 people at a 5 person table.

LOVE ANIS!!!
This place has been consistent for the 19 years we have been going there...it's where we have an Anniversary Dinner Every year we can (7 years running).
Filet is one of the best around, and the Loup De Mer is phenomenal.
Oh, and have to start with the mussels.
And the wine list is great as well - just asked and they can pair a great wine with your food.
