The cottage where Saveur Restaurant is located was completed in October 1913 by the owner Arthur Marshall McIntosh (1881-1953), a dentist. He was the twelfth of fifteen children of the Rev. George McIntosh, a descendant of a Scottish family emigrated in Australian in 1814 and settled in the North Shore district of Sydney.
This historical place was from the beginning not only a typical residential house but a home with a specific business purpose. There are no certainties in this regard, but we believe that the given name “Moy Lodge”, as it was called the dental practice of Arthur Marshall McIntosh in 1921, was a tribute to the village of Moy, from where his ancestor came.
The building is classic Australian architecture of 1910-1930, brick construction on sandstone base with formally decorated ceilings. Saveur Restaurant preserves in the ceramic tiles in front of the two fireplaces the crest of the Scottish clan McIntosh, symbolised by a rampant cat and by the motto "Touch Not The Cat Bot A Glove" (that means “Touch not the cat without a glove”).
The premises became a restaurant in the '80s in the previous incarnations such as La Belle Helene, Yan's and Bella Mia. After a complete refurbishment by the new owner Michael Chun, the new chef-owner October 2008, the restaurant is now known as Saveur, the French word for "flavour/taste", still serving traditional but innovative French-European cuisine.
