Another Gold Coast French restaurant that’s nice enough for date night, but manages to remain affordable. Bistronomic has a straightforward menu, with dishes like duck breast and escargot, and everything is solid. The desserts here in particular stand out - like their “black and white” creme brulee (topped with bittersweet chocolate), which is really the only date we need.
