Noir is that rare thing - a genuinely relaxed and friendly neighborhood restaurant that also happens to have award winning food and service. Recently renovated, the restaurant's chic style, elegance and warmth make for that perfect romantic meal for two, or a group of friends or family.

From humble beginnings in 2011, Noir has slowly developed a reputation for uncompromising quality and grown to include a beautiful bar and dining room upstairs, ideal for corporate and private functions.

Our kitchen led by chef patron, Peter Roddy, offers playful takes on regional French food, where exceptional produce takes center stage. A seasonal menu of outstanding Australian ingredients are sympathetically handled to create visually striking dishes of terrific flavour.

    If you are looking for a high end experience Noir was outstanding as always. The tasting menu is excellent value for top quality and delicious food. The delicate entrees of rosemary panisse and chicken liver parfait melted in the mouth. Baby squid stuffed with prawn mousseline, chilli sauce, crispy tentacles followed and was perfectly cooked and full of flavour. The main of lamb shoulder navarin was perfectly cooked and proportioned. Finishing off with Lemon meringue mille-feuille, caramelised puff pastry, pink grapefruit sorbet was a delight. All elements of the dessert came together in perfect balance. Wine and cocktails are reliably very good and reasonably priced. Matched with attentive service you cant go past Noir

    We had eight people join for dinner on Tuesday, we increased from 6 to 8 and no problem to accommodate the change. the service was terrific and we chose the banquet which allowed us to taste about 7 dishes, all of them delicious. the restaurant was quiet and we could carry out our conversations without having to raise our voices. Would highly recommend it to people looking for an upmarket but relaxed meal in the heart of Richmond.

    We attended in a family group of six. The group thought that the food was fair and service was reserved. The average score was 7/10. Some of the dishes were great but the steaks and risotto were disappointing, overall there was a lack of consistency and the experience was just above average. Average cost was $65.00 for 2 courses.

    Fantastic food and service! Though the menu selection was limited, the quality of the food offered was outstanding. I much prefer restaurants with a small menu of high calibre to providing a broad menu with inconsistency. The duck and the liver pate were the highlights for me. Will be returning to this amazing bistro.

    We went to Noir for a Sunday lunch. I found the 2 courses menu very affordable $49 with 1 glass of wine. Service was excellent. It's a very nice little restaurant and the general atmosphere is friendly. The dishes are well balanced in flavor and size. The duck pithiviers on mash potatoes was delicious. Great experience.

    Sensational as usual. I have dined in a few times. I love their seasonal tasting menu as everytime it gives me a little surprise. My favourite dish is the oysters with flake ice. But during the winter, they have changed into the soup for us which is even better because my Asian mum loves warm soup during winter. The price is the best value compared to other fancy restuarant's deguestation. I will come back again.
