Amanda and Anthony opened La Niche in 2005, and we have continued to focus on providing simple and honest traditional, Provincial French fare with a very cosy atmosphere - bringing a slice and taste of Brittany where Anthony grew up to this little pocket of Melbourne!

On Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights, we like to bring live music along with dinner and wine. You will hear a lot of French tunes, jazz and world music or Anthony singing "Non Rien de Rien"!

Saturday and Sunday all-day brunch is always a must!

Along with a la carte dining, La Niche is available for special bookings and private functions (private room upstairs seats around 20 - or for 40 or more, the entire venue including garden available for private use). We cater from finger food to a set menu for your special event.

Our venue includes art exhibition featuring local artists. Do not hesitate to contact us to have your work displayed.
