In an immaculate looking cute corner terrace, this French bistro feels warm & welcoming & takes you back to the countryside in France. Offering both indoor & al fresco (shaded) seating, the table by the windows at the front felt perfect for people watching & privacy. The dishes were all beautifully presented & cooked beautifully. Seared scallops are tender &... More

The restaurant is filled with the Southern France feel, simple and nice! relax atmosphere, friendly staffs. We went there on a Wednesday night, it was not that busy, 4-5 tables; and the dinning experience was lovely. I would recommend the entree with Duck Liver Pate, main with Coq au vin and finish with Classic Crème Caramel or Crème Brulee.

Not much issue with the food, nor its presentation. The garlic snails was buttery creamy though there was a tinge of bitterness. Salmon was cooked well, pink in the middle, very smooth. However the lady floor manager had an attitude of 'we dont really need your patronage' and issues of control. Kind of spoiled our meal. Rest of the team... More

Very busy and quite noisy, not really very French but some French dishes on menu. Most of us had the 69 dollar 3 course which was pretty good. The duck confit was very well cooked and the veg were really crunchy which we like. Steaks of various kinds are big here. The starters were fine but we did not find... More

We had a group of 7 for dinner and had a great experience starting g with cocktails at the bar and then continuing the fun at our table. We all ordered entrees, mains, desserts and drinks and to my amazement, the professional waiter took all the orders without writing any down on paper. His attention to detail was amazing and...

Very much enjoyed our dinner for 4 and we all felt it was good value at $69 for 3 courses. The boys shared the signature dish of slow cooked lamb shoulder which was plentiful and delicious. The restaurant atmosphere is lovely and the wait staff are smart, friendly and attentive. Our waitress Lucia was great fun.
