Restaurant Reviews


65B Macpherson St Bronte, Sydney, NSW


There’s a running gag in Agatha Christie novels with characters mistaking her most famous detective for a Frenchman. “Belgian,” says Hercule Poirot, correcting everyone. The same misconception could apply to chef David Coumont, a Belgian native who takes cues from both Australia and Europe for his seafood-rich menu. This elegant restaurant, named after his hometown, might be a neighbourhood venue but it bats far beyond its local brief. The blini selection – the little rounds topped liberally with trout roe or house-cured salmon – and an entrée of creamed corn mingled with hand-picked mud crab both delight with their simplicity. The saffron-spiked bouillabaisse is equally unfussy, showing Coumont’s light touch once again. The drinks list is global in outlook, with an apt smattering of Belgian beers. Exceptional service underscores the notion that Moxhe is a place you should leave your own neighbourhood to experience.
