The restaurant looks tempting but you will realize the dining area is actually very narrow. It's like you're eating in glass box inside mall. People passing by traffic can be very crowded specially during lunch time. The taste of food was good but not the best. Try not to sit at the terrace unless you are desperate to smoke. You... More

I go here all the time when I am on business in Jakarta, the fries with the garlic on them is amazing, the steak is excellent, service is always impeccable, lovely French décor, I cant fault it. Unusual location in a mall but that's Jakarta.

The first thing I heard about this place was essentially French. Nice decoration, nice atmosphere, … The ingredients were fresh and the foods were amazing. I chose Fish and Chip for my parent and Steak Tartare for me. What a delicious meal! Loved it! The prices were a bit expensive but the services were great, quickly and exactly. Highly recommend...

One of my favorite restaurants in the Plaza Indonesia area, this is the go-to spot when am hankering for savory mash potatoes! The French quiet cafe ambience and delicious drinks make it an appealing draw to a variety of restaurant goers, from families to singles to expats to couples to groups of friends. Will keep coming back to this quality... More

Decided to eat here because they don't use any msg or preservatives in their food which is a bit of an anomaly for Jakarta restaurants. Neither my wife or my daughter react well to msg. There were five of us including two children and despite being quite cosy little restaurant we there was plenty of space and the staff were... More

This is a very cosy, (literally a train carriage size and shaped restaurant in the middle of Plaza Indonesia shopping mall) but rather nice little bistro serving very good food. I had a steak with bearnaise sauce; the steak was cooked perfectly, the sauce was on the right side of 'tart' for my tastes, overall I really enjoyed it.
