REVIEW

Bistro Guillaume's commitment to Gallic tradition ensures the neo-bistro remains one of Crown  Perth's safer bets. While the prices might be more fine-diner than neighbourhood bistro, all the French comfort classics are present and accounted for: from confit duck leg with peas, speck and spring onions to a rich, benchmark-setting French onion soup with a Gruyère and croûton raft. Charcuterie, like the exemplary beef terrine and pork rillettes, is a dependable go-to. The rigatoni with braised lamb and olives, meanwhile, proves the experience isn't all Paris by numbers. Equally unexpected is the décor, a palette of lime, black and white that's been borrowed from the Melbourne original. It's refreshing but not overbearing, as is the confident and efficient service: staff will happily outline a plate's preparation and correct a pronunciation all in the same breath. And classic desserts (crème brûlée, profiteroles, soufflé) keep the odds stacked in the diners' favour.
