About Bistro du Peuple
Bistro du Peuple is a Mauritian influenced cafe in the financial precinct serving authentic creole fusion food Bistro Du Peuple is a delightful venue/restaurant/bar, one that makes up for its diminutive size with buckets of personality, a charming laneway location, and some kick-ass food. And drinks. And vibes. All with a cheerful, Mauritian bent. Much of Bistro Du Peuple’s charm comes from its gregarious leaders, Jean-Francois & Jennifer they are there to chat and have a laugh with all who roll through the door.
The Bligh Place restaurant is split into a couple of little levels – there’s a small space downstairs, looking out onto the lane and bustling with chatter. Then there’s the upstairs section, a small yet inviting nook at the top of the stairs, with a view onto the happenings below. There’s also an outside space,for enjoying the sunshine (or huddling against heaters in the winter until the beer blanket takes hold).
Bistro Du Peuple is found down Bligh Place, hiding just off Flinders Lane near Elizabeth Street. It’s a sneaky little location, but certainly makes one feel like they’ve discovered a treasure trove of food and drink. Flinders Street Station is a couple minutes’ walk away, and obviously there’s an abundance of trams nearby – this is the city after all.
