Longueville Eat Street Lane Cove

At one stage Longueville Road (from the pedestrian crossing to the Epping Road intersection) was called the forgotten end of Longueville Road.  Now it’s called Longueville Eat Street with so many new restaurants (as distinct from cafes).  Here is a rundown of the restaurants along that section of Longueville Road.

Four Frogs Creperie

Lane Cove is loving Four Frogs Creperie. It’s a very popular place for brunch, lunch and dinner.  Four Frogs Creperie is more than just a French restaurant – it’s a real French creperie, with full table service, owned and operated by four French men (the “four frogs”).

Try out their sweet crepes for dessert, and savoury galettes for a delicious meal, with a glass of cider or wine and some good company. They’re always made to order and are natural, fresh and delicious.   They mill their own buckwheat and make their own sauces.  Four Frogs shred wheels of Swiss cheese every day, slice their own ham as well as chicken and smoked duck. All of their veggies are fresh and they cook a large volume of mushrooms daily, it’s a rather incredible feat! Their onions are cooked in the Britanny tradition of cider which gives it a great taste. Monthly specials are made with fresh produce, whilst hot food items such as their slow cooked lamb, garlic and parsley snails are all lovingly prepared in-house. Et Voila! To see the full Four Frogs menu, click here.

ITC’s favourite dish: La tartiflette: Bacon, Swiss and raclette cheese, potato and onion slowly cooked in cider.

Lillah is fast becoming a Lane Cove favourite.  Lillah means beautiful night in Arabic.  Owner Trevor Blye is reminding people that Middle Eastern cuisine is more than Lebanese or Turkish food.  He worked with Nour executive chef Roy Ner to fuse Egyptian, Turkish, Israeli and Lebanese favourites into great dishes.  It’s about taking traditional bringing Middle Eastern flavours together and putting a modern twist on the dishes.

The best way to order at Lillah is to try different share plates.  ITC has eaten at Lillah several times and each time tasted a different cauliflower dish – if cauliflower is on the menu, order it you will not be disappointed. There is something on the menu for everyone with a range of vegan, vegetarian and meat dishes. See what all the fuss is about and make a booking for Lillah as soon as you can. Do not leave until you have had the Nutella baklava.

Foogoo is a modern, fresh Asian restaurant. The name Foogoo is a play on the words Food Good (and the food is good). They serve Yum Cha and modern Chinese and also some of your favourites like Kung Pao chicken.  Foogoo is owned by a Lane Cove couple who are passionate about fresh food.  They make everything on site including their dumplings and sauces. Foogoo caters for a family dinner or a night out without the kids.  The steamed dumplings are a hit.  This is not your average suburban Chinese Restaurant.

Little Red Robin

Little Red Robin Restaurant is Lane Cove’s newest restaurant and it is making a buzz. It’s a cosy, edgy and welcoming restaurant and wine bar.

Their chef takes inspiration from the traditions and culinary riches of the mediterranean, this modest restaurant and wine bar aims to treat patrons by re-imagining classic recipes in a contemporary aspect. Their address is Longueville Road but it is in fact nestled in Birdwood Lane (between Crust Pizza and Birdwood Cafe). Little Red Robin is a cosy place to enjoy small sharing plates at the bar or in the dining area, accompanied by some of the most intriguing, indigenous grape varieties and unusual wine styles the old world has to offer. Their wine list is exclusively European. 

They promise is to keep on surprising with frequent menu changes driven by freshness and seasonality, and a wine list that keeps you coming back for more.  Our favourite dish are the olives stuffed with cheese but the chocolate dome is AMAZING.
