Phenomenal, authentic French food in a beautiful space.

Yes, it *is* "all that". Amazing from start to finish, including a quick chat in French with the chef which was quite cool!! (I thought my French was rusty, but maybe working on Portuguese has improved my French...) Outstanding meal, superb service. The chevre salad, the fish in curry sauce... read more

Chef Gérard Durand is the soul of this restaurant, filling the space with his presence and simpaty. Service is perfect and atmosphere is quiet and calm. Food is great and portions more than fair. Wine list is very good, even if prices can be higher than expected. Selection of fish dishes is excelent. Always a pleasant experience.

Delicious, high quality food, pleasant atmosphere, a good wine list and a friendly staff. What else could I say? I had wine, water, spicy shrimp with pommes dauphine and crème brûlée for dessert. The portions were fair and I spent around R$ 100 ($ 45,-). PS: They offer valet parking

Our dear Chef Gerard is fantastic! Excellent food, nice wine list with possibility of bring your own bottle of wine and pay a cork fee, nice atmosphere, fair portions, and resonable price in a well located area and good atmosphere. If you like French, and are in Porto Alegre, must do!
