Description: Chez Girard is a treasure among the Busy-ness of Bryanston, where you will find delicious food and friendly service. We provide outside catering and platters as well. With an innovative and exciting menu combining French cuisine with a relaxed environment, this Bistro has a tradition of excellent food and service. Timeless French Fare, prepared in the exacting but uncomplicated provincial style of Christian's native Maconnais, between the Beaune and Beaujolais in Burgundy in France.

We had duck and kudo for main course. The food is amazing, fresh and unique. I have decided to go there frequently as it has quiet and relaxing area

Tucked away in the Weleda centre on Main road is a charming restaurant with delicious food and hospitable, french-speaking owner, Christian. Been to dinner there numerous times for many occasions, over weekends/during week. Never disappointed with the 3 course menu (you don't have to have 3 courses & is priced accordingly) which is reasonably priced and is value for money spent. It's a cosy, nicely presented place with secure parking. However this is not a well advertised restaurant - even on the building it is located in and therefore easily missed. Do yourself a big favour and experience it - you won't regret it!

Such a lovely intimate restaurant.
We were welcomed with a complimentary welcome drink.
The food was delicious!
I had the prawn and pawpaw salad for a starter which was absolutely delicious and had so many prawns! Well impressed.

My husband had a creamy muscle starter which was also divine! And very reasonable portions.

Main course was the duck which was delicious and dessert was a lemon tart.

Highly recommend this place.
The owner is so friendly and hospitable.

Go treat yourself.

My wife and I have been frequenting Monsieur Girard in Johannesburg over many years and he has never disappointed. His mussels are probably famous and you pray he just never runs out! But that's not where it stops - everything on his menu is tasty, with his original, personal touch (he does come around to every table!!). This is truly a gem of Johannesburg.

My wife and I eat at Christian's restaurant regularly. Being on holiday, but up early to take a car in for a service, we popped in at Chez Gerard, in the hopes he would be open early on a Thursday. The breakfast was delicious. The service was also, as usual, top-notch. We can always rely on our host's personal touches to make the experience eminently repeatable. Grateful thanks to all at Chez Girard who make us feel at home and special every time we visit. We are going to soon also try some of his party platters (to order to take away) for an upcoming function. The ingredients are intriguing!
