La Guillotine

One of the oldest French restaurants in Sydney, La Guillotine is proud to offer a wide range of traditional favourites, daily specials and an exclusive, extensive list of French wines.


In 1967 La Guillotine opened as a traditional French omelette house in the basement of 9 Albion Place. Now a Sydney icon, their authentic French restaurant first became extremely popular in the 1970s and has hosted many over the years who will never forget the very red walls, the iron bars in the archways and the Parisian atmosphere, emphasised by Edith Piaf and Charles Aznavour playing in the background. In 2002, the restaurant was reborn inside a converted office building at 518 Kent Street, only a stone’s throw away from the old Albion laneway. Current owner Joseph Bradaric, in his 27th year, has expanded the restaurant while keeping the original intimate feeling alive. The ground floor looks down onto Kent Street and takes in the Sydney street life.

Their menus are available in both French and English and include such favourites as:

  • Omelettes
  • Pâtés
  • Onion soups
  • Escargots
  • Moules marinières
  • Crêpes

La Guillotine is delighted to offer Alliance Française students and members one complimentary bottle of French wine for every group of 4 people.
