This one-off bistro certainly brings a hit of French va-va-voom to suburbia, standing out from the crowd not just for its bold-flavoured cooking and sassy avant-garde decor but for the charming service of owner and front-of-house impresario Vincent Gerbeau. The name may be Retro, but the kitchen turns out some pretty inventive dishes, starting with a three-way serving of mackerel with purple potato and horseradish salad, caviar, seaweed tartare and beetroot jelly, followed by melt-in-the-mouth pork belly with red cabbage, parsley root, herby ventrèche bread pudding and red wine jus. End with a coffee ice cream-filled chocolate eclair with whisky jelly and macadamia nuts.
