Welcomed at the door by a lovely waitress who seated us by the window with a view to the street, we were offered a nice glass of chilled water, which was just what we needed on such a hot evening. Nestling our byo wine into an ice bucket, we were offered a menu but before we could even open them,... More

D'Browes' menu is unashamedly aimed at a male dominated clientele. Although there are often many women and families enjoying the resteraunt, the meals are generous and French/Italian/European country styled with a heavy focus on meats. I love this resteraunt. It is the perfect destination for a boys lunch or dinner, with the Chef Damien treating all his guests in a... More

It is the Chef himself who comes to tell you what the specials are of the day. We had the oysters, scallops in very tasty garlic sauce and the ministrone soup as starters. All excellent but too much for starters. As maincourse we went for the gulash (spicy) with sauerkraut and the salmon. Delicious again but too much. Also the... More

Today was my first visit to this restaurant as the Narrabundah shops. The food was hearty and generous portions, well cooked and presented as well as a tasty treat. I enjoyed my smoked salmon. Others of our group enjoyed the lamb shanks. My neighbouring diner raved about the seafood pie, apparently one of the house specialties. Entrees were tasty too... More

Hearty food with a french flair. I have been a number of times to D'Browes and have never been disappointed. Their lamb shanks are delicious but be warned they are not skimpy meals so bring your appetite. I will be going back.

This restaurant is an old favourite and we've probably tried most of the extensive menu (there are specials too) over the years we've been coming here. Chef Damian always remembers us and makes us feel welcome. On our most recent visit, each of us had an entree and a main course: the tempura prawns and fillet steak, oysters and the... More
