Fleur: Restaurant review

A pub, a French floral name, a modern Japanese menu. It just works.


The French word for flower seems an odd name for a pub dining room leaning this hard into Japanese cuisine. A pub dining room where juicy kangaroo and pork tsukune kick-start proceedings. Where ocean trout is sauced tableside with a smoked mussel dashi. And where sake sits comfortably on a drinks list pushing sharp cocktails and wines that are as contemporary as the art beautifying this timeless, low-lit space. (As maverick as some of the paintings might be, Fleur, like the rest of the heritage-listed Royal Hotel it resides in, is still more awe than shock.) By the time the rosy dry-aged duck, Cacao Barry chocolate sorbet, petit fromage and other Gallic flourishes do materialise – by way of optional but recommended dinner add-ons, such as a luxe rock lobster prawn toast remake – you're so under the spell of charming waitstaff that gaffs in continuity seem like the smallest of small beer.
