The Reymond family has been part of the fabric of the Melbourne hospitality scene for over three decades, with current restaurants Bistro Gitan+ and L’Hotel Gitan carrying forth the culinary tradition.
Both restaurants are named after the gypsy travellers of Europe; Gitan reflects a style of cuisine drawing from the best of contemporary French bistros accented by inclusions from Spain, Italy and around the Mediterranean.
Set opposite Fawkner Park in a stunning classic Victorian building, Bistro Gitan is the older sister representing a more traditional French bistro style experience, while L’Hotel Gitan, a gastropub set in a Art Deco icon offers seasonal dining in the heart of Prahran. A more casual affair than its sister restaurant, Bistro Gitan, L’Hotel serves classical, yet innovative French fare.
At both Gitans, the Reymond family celebrates the generous welcoming style of dining that the family has enjoyed for generations in France. It’s this community sharing of the table that sees the Gitan online store offer our valued guests a chance to purchase and enjoy favoured wines and other items at home.
