I had heard a lot about this restaurant and tried to pay a visit. I ate one boeuf bourguignon and it was fair but nothing that makes me wanting return. Besides facilities are very poor. They need to refurbish the place.

I ordered the house special of steak au poivre which was really good although it came only with a choice of boiled rice or (I think) boiled potatoes. This is a small French café. The service was friendly. The half-carafe of house red was very...More

It's got a cozy vibe inside and the staff were very friendly. The food really was terrible though. The abalone were tough and flavourless, the bife de chorizo was almost inedible, the salad was terrible (unripe avocado). Definitely go here for a drink, and probably...More

This family owned restaurant is a classic and well kept secret in Lastarria neighborhood. French menu in a small and cosy local are really a place to visit. Good french dishes and selection of drinks and wines.

When the people running an establishment look like they are dragging themselves through the evening, it's not surprising that the food reflects the boredom. It's a shame because there are good flavours in the food, let down by the slapdash presentation and perfunctory service.

Great food and a beautiful little place. The owner was so friendly. He was about to close for mid day but saw we were hungry and thirsty and let us order some fantastic appetizers. Get the snails!
