Over-priced for what they offered. Drinks were too small. They were much better about 5 years ago. Only the strong survive, and they weren't strong enough.

The table was rickety and too small. We should have left right away, but we were with a friend who was leaving town the next day, and we didn't want to lose time. I ordered a seafood stew in a tomato-coconut broth; my partner ordered the special of the day, rabbit tagine. They arrived five minutes later, which should have... More

Stopped by for a late night drinks and snacks with friends. The waiter was a stereotype of a French server, if you know what I mean (and he appeared to be French). But, it made me feel like I was in Paris. The hostess was lovely. We ordered the octopus salad and a cheese plate. The salad was phenomenal. The... More

Small restaurant on the border of LES and Chinatown. Menu is a mix of mostly North African and Brazilian selections. The Picanha was nicely cooked but under-seasoned. The couscous was fairly good. Wines were ok but nothing really stood out.

This lady in the Eldridge Synagogue suggested Les Enfants Terribles... and we were very glad. The atmosphere was perfect, service very good and food quite good. Slightly limited menu... we got there at... More

Having just come back from brazil, the mocqueca I had at les enfants was pretty decent. The place was quite pretty and intimate and the staff was really nice. It might be a little cramp, but overall had a good experience.

My children and I walked in circles around Chinatown looking for cozy place to eat that didn't have irridescent lights and plastic table clothes. We bumped into this restaurant/cafe and althought they were in the middle of hosting their NYC happy hour, they welcomed me and my two kids in and served us like we were the only guests in... More

i give this place 3 1/2 stars. i had a fisherman stew and it was good :-) wish the bowl was little bit bigger. Yummy cocktails. Nice place to hang out with your friends.
