This restaurant is consistently great both in food and environment. It's certainly not cheap, but it's got excellent French food and is a great location for dinner.

By the way, this is definitely not my first magnificent French meal at this beautiful restaurant. Now of course, my 80th certainly was more than just a "special occasion"because this was my third birthday in a row where I chose to dine for this very special one! And again, was I ever totally blessed to have Jennifer, once again, as... More

Both our meals were a disappointment. It appears that someone read a French cookbook, but did not follow the preparation details. The coq a vin was overdone and not flavorful.

Nice interior design, ok service. The drinks ok for the price.Soups were the only good dishes(gazpacho and carrot soup with bits of oranges and anis spice, which was very sweet and could pass for a dessert), but the salad and a main dish were a big disappointment. Dry overcooked chicken breast with really bland and uninteresting mashed potatoes and sauteed... More

Great area with a terrace and outside seating, the restaurant offers a nice menu, great bar also if you just want to relax with a late night drink. Restaurant is inside a very trendy area with shops.

When you go to avenida escazu you expect to pay highest in the country prices for a special meal. This place surprised us with the food quality, but also with reasonable prices and very chic ambience. Try their fish provencale style - delicious
