Fantastic!

Staff was nice, food was amazing. Located just up the beach from our hotel so we went there for the poutine at lunch and the filet minion for dinner. Both were out of this world.

Sitting on the restaurant's second floor, we got a great view of the Atlantic Ocean while having dinner at Le Petit Francois. We originally stopped in just for an appetizer and drinks, but ending up splitting the Mahi Mahi main course The fish was firm, neither slippery or soft. Cooked just right with garnish of cucumber, capers, sliced carrot and... More

This restaurant was recommended by a lady at the front desk of the hotel we were staying at. We wanted to share a nice celebratory meal with friends we were traveling with as my fiancé and I just got engaged. We had a taxi drive us there and actually walked us right to the restaurant since it's a little walk... More

We found this restaurant by great good fortune, one day walking along the beach. It was like an oasis. The decor was terrific, and the staff were cheerful and very helpful. We had a lovely meal of pate foie-gras, fresh caught lobster, creme brulee and a very nice bottle of french wine. We were in heaven!

For mains we both had chicken dishes one a Parmesan chicken and the other cordon bleu again delicious. We... More

I do not know what it is like during lunch time but we went there in the evening. The waiters are very friendly, the polite kind of friendly, not the typical harassing Dominican style. I liked the food there. I nearly did not finish it because they gave me a big plate, but I prefer too much than not enough... More
