Augustus Bistro restaurant review 

Metro Top 50 2018 restaurant Augustus Bistro in Ponsonby serves traditional French food.

This Ponsonby bistro located in the heritage-listed former post-office building at Three Lamps takes its inspiration from Paris. The menu reads like a lesson in French classics – steak tartare, duck à l’orange, steak frites with sauce béarnaise, crab bisque, baked-to-order madeleines – and French grape varietals and Champagne dominate the wine list. The elegant dining room with its high ceilings, white tablecloths and luxuriant greenery sets the scene for a memorable dinner; like any good Parisian bistro, the atmosphere is lively and the outdoor courtyard is always popular.
