Critic's review

Food
Elevated bistro dining in a casual yet stylish environment, Tasha's Le Parc has somethingfor every palate. If you’re on a health streak you’re guaranteed to find something from the 'The Food for Thought and Healthy Appetite' menus, more refined French style options like the salmon tartar or the chicken vol-au-vent will ensure you can impress a guest.

Known for their generous breakfasts, this makes for an ideal place for a sumptuous brunch, enjoy a classic like the croque monsieur or the luxurious millionaires eggs - topped with salmon roe, truffle oil and parmesan shavings.

Well made staples like sandwiches, salads, pasta and burgers are on offer, however, comforting offerings like steak frites or the bouillabaisse seafood stew are exceptional. More adventurous options include the steak tartare, a whopping 250g of hand-chopped fillet served with the traditional condiments and french fries are a testament to the quality of ingredients used. A perfect spot for the 'ladies who lunch', salads like the quinoa tabouleh, deconstructed goats cheese and le parc nicoise (take on a salad nicoise) make for a light yet interesting lunch. A selection of desserts are on offer but the star of the show here is the cake and pastry table. My favourite the custard mille-feuille, a heavenly combination of custard and crispy layers of pastry flecked with vanilla bean, always puts a smile on my face.

Drinks
A selection of well known and well-priced wines grace the list, enjoy a bottle of Prosecco or splash out on a bottle of French champagne for that celebratory brunch. The granitas like the cucumber, apple and mint or lemon grass and cherry are refreshing summer options. While the dedicated coffee menu can leave a connoisseur overwhelmed with choice.

Service
Tasha Le Parc is often busy and people wait patiently for a table. Yet the staff seem to handle this with great ease and manoeuvre around the restaurant in an efficient and professional manner.

Ambience
The dining room of the restaurant is located in one of the lobbies at the Hyde park mall. Cleverly decorated in a french conservatory feel, made cosy with comfortable seating and earthy green elements.

And....
Tashas does not take reservation so get there early on weekends to avoid the queues.
