Annie Smithers' Bistrot

Ok, this is now unofficially James' blog. This time our 11-year-old buddy has headed up the Calder to Kyneton and gone all French at Annie Smithers. Lucky bugger.

Annie Smithers’ Bistrot
72 Piper St, Kyneton. Ph: 5422 2039

"Pretentious no. Great food yes.

Annie Smithers’ Bistrot is a restaurant in Kyneton, only about one hour north of Melbourne. It claims to be French cuisine but I thought it was more Australian contemporary.

We were in Kyneton because of Mum’s birthday so we thought we would take her to a special restaurant.

When we arrived we were given the menus. We ordered garlic prawns, some scallops and an onion tart. It took about 20 minutes for the entrees to arrive and when they did I had the garlic prawns first. They were very well cooked and the garlic taste wasn’t too overpowering. In fact they could have used a bit more garlic sauce.

Next I tried the scallops. They were warm and tasted nice.

Then came the onion tart, which I didn’t try but Mum and Dad thought that it was the best entrĂ©e.

For the mains we ordered gnocchi, a lamb shoulder and roast pork with sage butter.

After another 20-minute wait the mains arrived. I tried the lamb first and I thought it was the best of the three. The lamb was falling off the bone and it tasted so good.

The pork was another delicious main. The meat was cooked to perfection and the sage butter was really nice.

After two great mains I was getting ready for another one, but sadly the gnocchi was a bit disappointing. It was a bit plain, lacked flavour and was a bit too soft.

One sign of a good restaurant is that you have some room for dessert after entrees and mains. At Annie Smithers, for dessert we shared some apple and cinnamon pancakes. They were very good. The maple syrup was good and the little pieces of apple through it added to the taste.

After that great meal we all agreed it was a birthday well spent!"
