We found this gem while visiting Kelowna. The escargot as an appetizer was delicious. The boulibasse was the best we ever had. The service was excellent. The price was very reasonable. We will be talking about this meal for a long time!

We really liked this restaurant the food was exceptional. Everything gets 5 stars except the service was 4 star a bit of confusion with the waiter and on payment. I am not sure if it was a language barrier or something else however it did not spoil our wonderful evening.

If you like French bistros, you will love this restaurant! Authentic bistro menu and everything was perfect, including attentive service! I had LA BOUILLABAISSE--fantastic with perfect pommes frites--and a devine creme caramel for desert. i can't wait to go back. If there were a place as good as this in Atlanta, I would dine there regularly!

This was our second visit and we were not disappointed. The chicken liver pate is heavenly. My sister who had the oxtail ravioli and lamb dish said it was the best meal she ever had. A must visit in Kelowna.

Whenever we visit Kelowna my husband and I make sure we eat there at least once. The food is excellent and the service is classy. The first time we ate there about three years ago we got hooked, and the restaurant never disappointed us once. The food is French with a local twist - everything comes from local farms, most...

This has for some time been, in my opinion, the best restaurant in Kelowna and my most recent visit has done nothing but confirm me in that opinion. My wife and I took another couple here for dinner and, as expected, it was in every way first rate. Reservations had been handled properly, the staff were intelligent and attentive and... More

We had heard a lot about this place and went for our anniversary dinner. The food itself was just ok- I ordered the mussels and they were average; I would not recommend those to anyone. My husband ordered the lamb which was on the blander side and quite chewy. The highlight of the evening was the Moulin Rouge cocktail and... More

This rare find in Kelowna should be on Michelin list (if it ever decides to cover Canada). Exceptional food quality, delicate presentation, and highly knowledgeable staff make this a must visit for anyone looking for more than casual dining that seems to proliferate this town. lOne caveat: al fresco dining will be facing constant traffic and unfinished construction site across...

If you want REAL French food, this is the place to go. My boyfriend and I came here for his birthday dinner. Everything from booking the reservation, the host who answered the phone was amazing and he knew our names before we even got through the door! Now, that's service. The meal? Incredibly delicious! My boyfriend had the duck and... More
