About French Connection Bistro
Welcome to the French Connection Bistro.
Established in 1986, The French Connection is a traditional, French café bistro. We serve individually prepared, fresh, French-style dishes, using high quality ingredients. This intimate, classic café bistro offers vibrant breakfast, lunch dining and transforms into a romantic, boutique, restaurant for full à la carte evening dining. Our menus change regularly to reflect the seasonal availability of produce and for a special experience we offer occasional themed evenings, focussing on regional dishes from all corners of France. Our head chef has over 24 years’ experience here in our own kitchen and will cook each dish with attention to detail in accordance with the highest traditions of French Cuisine.
Unlike most traditional French restaurants, we offer an excellent selection in vegetarian dishes and can cater for all dietary requirements. In complete harmony with our French counterparts we offer a great flexibility in child portions, to enable families to eat together.
The sauce for steak was very good
Lovely atmosphere with fine food and wine, served by friendly knowledgable staff. Bar area at front has opened up the space nicely for pre food drinks.
Perfect french bistro atmosphere, small and cosy! Took my mom for her birthday meal and it was absolutely fantastic. Warm welcome and service was great, food was outstanding. Majority of us had the beef fillet, so good we asked where it was from (the manager was very knowledgable and it was interesting to hear the source of their meat). Will definitely be revisiting!!
Excellent as always!
Delicious as always!
another great meal - très bien merci
We really enjoyed our meal but think you could supply a dish of vegetables with main course. We paid £5 for a very small dish of roasted veg, which was a bit disappointing
Lovely lunch and our friends were very impressed
Thank you for delicious food and good service. We'll be back!
A warm relaxing atmosphere. Friendly service and beautiful food!
Excellent meal in new updated surroundings.
There are very few traditional Western European restaurants serving fine food and drink in the West Midlands, let alone Stourbridge. This is one of the best.
It was lovely to see the place so busy with happy eaters when we arrived for our lunchtime meal. There was a considerable wait for our order to be served but that simply gave us time to soak up the atmosphere and catch up on gossip! The waitresses (should I call them 'waiters' in these pc times?) were very friendly and efficient. So, a thoroughly enjoyable visit and the food was excellent. We will be back soon to sample the evening menu.
Love the new contemporary look. Our food was lovely although a little pricey. It would be good if you could maybe offer choices on your set menus. The soup was gorgeous! We will be back although probably for a special occasion as it’s so expensive.,
Excellent food at reasonable prices, friendly and attentive service.
Lovey food and environment - amazing french bread
Great food. Great bistro. très bien merci
A very enjoyable evening on a table with plenty of room. Thank you
Food was beautifully presented, well cooked and very flavoursome. Service was friendly and professional. Atmosphere was perfect. But, the portion sizes (especially the cod) were so small we just felt a bit disappointed for the price charged.
I’d give 6 stars for the front of house were it possible.
Great food - not cheap but well worth it for the quality of cooking.
Celebrated birthday here. Lovely evening. Very helpful staff and we would highly recommend the fillet steak!!
The owner welcomed us warmly but the waitress needs some more training or confidence to make us feel looked after and valued as a customer. She had a similar attitude as the Parisian French rather cold!
A wonderful evening, thank you!
