Our tour company had booked us into this restaurant as a first night 'treat'. I really can't see the point of travelling to Myanmar to eat OK but certainly not special French food. No discernable Asian twist, just small 1980's style towers of edible food that wouldn't be out of place in an amateur cooking contest. I can imagine coming... More

Did not expect to find this in Yangon. It was our last night so we phoned to book this restaurant as a nice end to our holiday. For $78 each we had the set menu which was lovely - 7 courses of substantial size plus many extras, all beautifully presented. We were so full by the end we could barely... More

My group was quite surprised at the beautiful garden setting, and candlelights. Only bad thing - you need to wear repellent due to the mosquitoes. The courses of food were well-chosen by the owner, with an amuse-guele as well. The food was excellent, and the service staff was attentive to our needs. The dishes were well-presented.

Excellent food. Period. Also being french cuisine it is slightly undercooked, however that's alright as long as you have fresh ingredients which it was. Nicely presented and well timed in terms of serving between dishes, do try the desserts - they're definitely de-stressed you as stressed is desserts spelled backwards.

A lot is said about this place but take this from frequent visitor to Myanmar. It is a nice escape from buzzing city streets while on vacation. If you have spent time travelling around Myanmar and end up here, you would feel like you are in heaven ( The set up is extraordinary and tables are set in the garden... More

This place is amazing! It was so good we went twice, once at the start of our holiday and again on our last night when we returned to Yangon. We sat out in the gardens (you will need to put insect repellent on your feet and legs) which is lit by candlelight. The second time we went, there was a... More

We dined as part of a conference group & walked into a garden lit with lights & umbrellas & a large choir- it was magical ! I can't remember exactly what we ate but it was good. The staff were also relaxed & service good.

We had a very nice evening and had the set meny with seven dishes, all nicely presented and prepared. The set meny was around 75 US and we choose a Myanmar shiraz for only 30. But they have a rich selection of French wines, quite ok! The dishes were served quickly, maybe too quickly. But they were all tasty and... More
