CRU is best understood when you've seen all its colours. Start your day with a coffee, breakfast, and the day's paper, served by familiar faces. Kick back in the afternoon with man's best friend in our sunny courtyard, while enjoying a burger and an ice-cold beer. As the sun gets low, come talk shop with our resident 'wine guy' in the cosy front bar over a glass of something red, just before sitting down to a beautiful dinner in our Private Dining Room.FUNCTIONS & EVENTSFrom 10 - 150, we'd love to host your event, whatever it may be: milestone birthdays, school functions, even weddings. To meet your needs, we offer a Private Dining Room with it's own balcony & sound system, the Courtyard + the affectionately named "Shed," and when the rest is not enough, the entire venue is available.
To quote one of our bloggers HenryNSW “Wonder where the local French go for a taste of home? Wonder no more”. A La Bouffe is where you will experience true French hospitality. When the French back home get together with friends and family to prepare a meal, when all the chopping, mixing and baking is done, the cook calls out “a la bouffe” let’s eat, and everyone sits down to enjoy their home cooked meal. That is what you will experience at A La Bouffe – an informal, friendly and delicious experience. No pretensions, just good friendly service and delicious food. When French visitors are feeling home sick for some Cream Brulée or Clafoutis (traditional sour cherry pudding) this is where they visit.Jacky Frenot and Gabrielle Dewan, owners of A La Bouffe Bar & Bistro invite you to come to our little corner of France in the middle of Prahran and South Yarra shopping precinct and indulge your senses with our extensive range of popular traditional French dishes and contemporary style dishes as specials. Try our Seafood Millefeuille, puff pastry with mussels, scallops and prawns in seafood bisque. Or our Pavé a La Bearnaise, grass fed Goulburn Valley beef thick eye fillet, Pommes Sarladaises, green salad and Béarnaise sauce . Just two samples from our menu. There is an extensive wine list featuring French and Australian wines, aperitifs and beers.We are across the road from the Como Palace Cinema and we are open to late. So after the film, finish off a perfect evening with a glass of wine or champagne, or a coffee and one of A La Bouffe’s signature desserts.As MoMo & Coco describe A La Bouffe: “beautiful heartfelt food delivered by unpretentious staff in an utterly elegant setting….Overall, A La Bouffe is a fine showcase of rather authentic, accessible French luxury….”
