Lovely French bistro!

Service great and friendly. The food is well presented and very good, typical french bistro. The ambiance is warm and welcoming, even the music is french. A place to go to if you like french food with its ambiance. We enjoyed it very much and will comeback,

The Food here is amazing, from starter to main course & dessert, staff give us thoughtful suggestion when selecting what to have, superb service provided. The ambience was cozy & lovely French interior design. A surprise brownie cake for our 24th Anniversary celebration.

However, when I walked in, she came to me and mentioned that she remembered when I was there last and where we were seated. That may be a small thing, but you cannot expect... More
