The occasional stab at keeping up with trends (food delivered on boards, chicken liver parfait served in a Mason jar) doesn't detract from what Bistro Guillaume does best: solid French bistro classics in smart surrounds. The riverside dining room may nudge theme-park territory with its zinc-topped, absinthe-green bar, paper- and cloth-dressed tables and timber chairs, but the décor makes complete sense once the food starts landing. Take the sublime twice-cooked soufflé with Roquefort sauce, for instance, or juicy, tarragon-flecked chicken with mash, or textbook steak frites with a silky-smooth béarnaise. Desserts are classic, too, though the specials board might also offer gems such as the shiny dark chocolate and salted-caramel tart with rum and raisin ice-cream. The French-leaning wine list offers wine by the glass, bottle and carafe at prices that are surprisingly reasonable, particularly given the casino context.
