Excellent service and a very nice lunch.

Saw the menu and decided to give this restaurant a try. They've just restarted weekend lunch (Fri,Sat,Sun)so not crowded and lovely weather for sitting out. We ordered Croquet Madame and Pate baguette, both came with bowls of pomme frite. The baguette alsocame with cornichon, onions and salad... read more

I would like to say that this truly Belgium style restaurant could deliver classic cuisine as described on the menu, but it unfortunately just doesn't work. The "beef stew" meat was very tough and the gravy was thickened to a degree so as to make it hold a spoon upright. The steak tartare is a disaster. To begin with the... More

A decent restaurant in a very touristy part of the main drag of Palm Springs. Food was average. But the best part is the outdoor seating and people watching.

I went here for dinner with my husband- we both ordered the mussels and fries. The sauce on the mussels tasted like water(no flavor). We both ordered French onion soup as a starter. The soup was very good. Both of our orders of fries were undercooked. Our server was polite and professional. I would not order the mussels again and... More

Thank you very much for your review. Sorry to hear that your fries were under-cooked but why not tell the waiter ? he could have corrected it right away. As for your mussels, the marinieres which are steamed mariner style, tend to be bland since there is no additive other than celery, leek, wine and butter. The onion soup has... More

We enjoyed dinner here two years ago (see my additional review) and since we were back in PS we thought let's go again.....and we were not disappointed. The food is French/Belgium inspired and thoroughly delicious. As with our previous visit, the owner gets it when it comes to pricing wine. Great cellar and very reasonable markup.

Nice location in the heart of downtown. Showed up without reservations, but after some theatrics, the host was able to seat us within 10 minutes. I would recommend reservations, however. Food was well prepared and served promptly. Outdoor patio seating with heaters allows for people watching!

Our lunch was exceptional. I ordered the goat cheese salad and it was delicious. The service was very good and the atmosphere, sitting outside was very pleasant. There were five of us in our party and all meals served were excellent. I would definitely return to this little gem in PS.

1/17/16 Very good food. Service was timely. Escargot was very good. The music was way to loud and was finally turned down after requesting reduction 2 times. TVs and recorded music detract from nice, cozy, small atmosphere. I do not go out to dinner to watch TV.

Thank you very much for your review. We take all comments seriously and with positive criticism. We are very proud of our food and of course our Escargots, sorry about the music it is only meant to be some French music in the background, as for the TV some customers sometimes request a particular game or event.We look forward to...
