Piaf plays with the populism of South Bank in several pleasing ways.

Its modern design, with sleek simple furnishings, warm timber detailing and an inside that feels decidedly outside, make a great foil for people-watching and enjoying the shade of tree-lined Grey Street.

Its classic bistro fare is surprisingly good value and ingredients unfamiliar to modern Australian palates are prepared in crowd-pleasing ways: escargot are immersed in a tasty tomato sauce with melting garlic confit; the creaminess of lamb's brains is countered by a deep-fried batter and crisp speck.

The wine list is very small, very French and all by the glass. Need help deciphering a Beaujolais from a Cotes du Rhone? Knowledgeable staff will offer varietal translations. There's nothing esoteric about dessert either; try the not-too-sweet chocolate panna cotta with its dark boysenberry sauce and hazelnut praline, utterly satisfying in its flavour combinations.

Piaf is South Bank dining at its best.
