I liked this place. The food is well priced, and the drink are made well. But really...watch the habaneros. I ordered the Hawaian pizza but the habaneros ended being way too much to bear. The burgers looked good. I'd go again.

I have never liked fish too much but this monkfish was one of the best tasting fish I have ever had. It didnt have to much of a fishy taste.

Went in to try their pasta for $10 offer. I had tagliatelle and my brother had lasagne. Looked small portions but a fair bit of eating in them and very tasty so it was a good offer. Looked like quite a pricey place so probably wouldn't have gone in had it not been for the deal!

Our group tried all of the appetizers, from artichokes and salmon patties to calamari and steak frites. Followed up by amazing pizza, and served with wine...who had room for dinner? I ordered the veggie burger - a huge well-seasoned portbella on a fresh (Fraiche?) bun as big as my head.

Really nice restaurant that is good value for money - particularly as its right at the heart of 3rd Street Promenade. The vegetable lasagne and the steak frites were superb and the strawberry special dessert simply amazing. Nice selection of wines and a good atmosphere made this a really nice place to eat

This restaurant was just off the main drag, and we came across it by accident. We were surprised by the cheap price of the food, which was modern and of a high standard. The wait staff were friendly and helpfull. I highly recommend this place, it should be ranked much higher.

This place is clean, relaxing and delicious. We walked in by chance without reservations, we were seated within 10 minutes. We had an excellent waitress who gave us great advice on the area. We Started with the calimari then had the habenaro pizza and truffle burger..all were delicious. Would love to eat there again.

foodies, travelling, hungry that's what we are! found Fraiche just by walking by very nice place, very well done in decoration menu, easy, simple, straight to the point we ordered a pizza I am Italian and did not have a nice pizza since 10 years in NM that was good, and a margherita it's a good choice because simplicity is...

We had a delicious dinner with fantastic drinks at this attractive, well located spot. Everyone in our (large) group was completely happy with this choice.
