Poplars Restaurant, Bright, Victoria


Poplars - A French bistro nestled in the heart of Victoria's alpine valleys

Poplars is one of Bright’s finest restaurants. After a day exploring all the region has to offer, join Julia and Patrick for a superb dinner prepared with the freshest local produce. At Poplars food, atmosphere and service combine to create an exceptional dining experience.

The menu offers classic bistro dishes including fillet steak with pommes frittes, roasted poussin, confit of duck, soufflés, brulee and lemon tart. The seasonal menu changes throughout the year and is enhanced by a blackboard menu that features the best products available each day.

Poplars emulates the traditional, relaxed atmosphere of a French bistro, guests are welcome in the dining room, or in summer at the outdoor café tables under the grapevine. Dining can be as simple as a plate of terrine or rillettes and a glass of wine, a cappuccino and a lemon tart, or as elaborate as a four-course dinner paired with outstanding regional wines. We offer an extensive wine list showcasing premium wines from the valley.

Take a look at the gallery for a taste.
