A real French Style Restaurant right here in Bluffton!

This is an upscale eatery and the prices of the entrees are also upscale. But for an excellent meal perfectly prepared and excellent service, the whole experience is worth the expense. The food and sauces brought us right back to our trip to Paris many years ago. Superb!

What a wonderful experience in an area that was so American in style...Claude and Ulli have brought a piece of France/Austria to the area...It was quaint ...yet elegant...The food was part of a bygone area very seldom seen in this part of the world...We were very intrigued as to how they kept their wine prices so low...and a good selection...

Have been there many times - and each time the meal was wonderfully prepared and wonderful to taste. The Chef (Claude) - with notice - will make anything you want and Uli makes the customers feel relaxed and special. Service is very good.

We sampled the Lamb, Chicken Linguini "Normandie" with Mushroom Cream Sauce and Beef Bourguignon (Beef braised in red wine sauce). Included are Soup or Salad and a variety of Deserts. All for $20. This is a very lovely Resturant serving old world French food.

What a fantastic restaurant and staff. The chef was not only the best in preparing such mouthwatering dishes but also made table visits and made us not feel as customers but almost family. It was the best anniversary dinner my family enjoyed. Please experience this fine restaurant. We will make it a tradition to come and enjoy each time we... More

I had the veal normsdie, it came with mixed vegebles and mashed potatoes. My husband had the rack of lamb, with the same sides. My veal was large which I debated taking some home but since... More

Excellent food but a bit overpriced. The Leg of Lamb was so so. The service was impeccable. The rest of the entrees were quite good

My friend loves French food and after finding this gem, we were not disappointed! This is a small, family run business and you can tell the food is made with love. For a Frencch restaurant the prices are reasonable. I had the grouper and enjoyed how well the fish was cooked and the vegetables were fantastic! My friend had the... More

Been around for a long time, the quality seems to have slowly disintegrated over the years. It still has the personal service touch, however, prices remain a bit high. The fare reminds one of chain restaurants, although Claude will stir up something special if you request. Uli is very friendly and accomodating. As said, order the schnitzel but stay away... More
