Fre-Jac French Restaurant
The Parisian owners of Fre-Jac have lovingly brought a slice of France to the Australian country town of Balingup. The menu changes monthly with the seasons, and favourites include duck confit, escargots from Bourgogne and crème brûlée. Dress here is smart casual, with diners enjoying the gardens in summer and snuggling up around the fire during the cooler months. It’s best to make a booking at this popular restaurant as otherwise you’ll be fighting off the locals for a table. Nearby is the Fre-Jac French Bakery, where all the ingredients for the pastries and breads are imported from France.
