While in HCMC we ate here twice. The food is really amazing and well priced. The menu has real variety and original food. On my first visit I had black pudding and duck on my second. My partner had pork fillet and steak. All plates were left empty. Servings where adequate for dinner, we did not leave hungry. On our... More

For some reason the selection and the quality of their food is going downhill compared to before. LAst two times we have been there, they were out of mussles. We ordered onion soup, risotto, beef, etc. and none of them tasted the way they used to be. I really used to like this place so I might give them one... More

Just gone there this eve. Well service, good champane (they serve for free, thank God! It makes them one plus)... But no special foods! We had duck, salmon, gout cheese salad and mussels. Except the last one, all are very normal for the price we paid. My parents hardly ate anything. Here you got overvalued foods! PricyMy first and last... More

The first impression, the interior decoration is nice. Compliments finished ! The staff is friendly, but not qualified, poor english and no word french - even the menu is in french and english. I came for mussels, unfortunatly mussels are not available. But under "Seafood" they only have mussels, so I decided to order the duck breast, and onion soup... More

Upon arrival we were greeted with smiles and a complimentary glass of champagne, what a way to begin our experience. The cheese plate was fantastic, the Emmnuel and goat cheese being the big stand outs. Filet mignon was cooked to a true mid-rare, the accompanying potatoes au gratin were a creamy delight with a crisp buttery top. The chicken fricasee... More

Great meal and great service! After 3 weeks of mainly vietnamese food we treated ourselves to a great french meal and a nice bottle of wine. The frog-legs where beter then I ever had in France.

Two years ago I rated this restaurant "very good": Food was good and reasonably French and the place had a cosmopolitan atmosphere. It was in my shortlist for almost a year, then with a new management the place started to deteriorate. Yesterday was my very last time here. Onion soup was totally tasteless, salad was aged and tuna is still... More
