Little French Gem in the Southwest

For anyone looking for authentic French bistro cooking, this is the place to go in Albuquerque. Escargots, duck confit, croque monseiur, quiche, an assortment of cheeses, and every Thursday, oysters flown in from the east coast.

This intimate bistro provides a taste of Paris in Albuquerque. Previous delicious dinners brought us back. On our most recent visit, my wife and I shared an endive with roquefort salad and then sampled mussels marinieres and the haddock special, all perfectly cooked and delightfully served. The wine list is modest, but is well chosen and provides excellent value. Service... More

While myslef and a co-worker were traveling on business in Albuquerque, we decided one night to just go out to Knob Hill and eat dinner. No place in mind, no plan. We had seen sveral places along Central, but they looked really busy. So in the process or turning the car around and going around the block, our Jedi skills... More

OK so the party of 8 next to our table was noisy to the point of being grossly inconsiderate. It will be better when management develops and employs a technique for courteously but effectively asking such a party to consider that other diners are being affected. We were unable to converse in a volume that reached across our table and... More

friendly staff, French or English speaking, very quaint and cozy, absolutely fabulous mussels! The location is a bit funky and you have to know where it is but once you get there you can eat in or out on the patio.

The restaurant has a great French bistro feel; in keeping with the bistro concept the tables are close together and small. The place was full of conversation when we entered but quieted down during our lunch. We had lunch reservations and waited only 10 minutes for our table ( a very small round bistro table). The inside seating area was... More

Note: this small French café on the corner only serves lunch. For dinner, see the downtown location. We had the harreng aux pommes a l'huile and the moules au roquefort at lunch, both meeting our expectations. The latter featured 24 mussels in a large bowl, a very filling as well as delicious lunch. My herring was delicately flavored and melted... More

Intimate restaurant - we really felt like at a french bistro. Friendly service, delicious food that is very fresh. Great quality. We were there on a Wednesday when Christolph (sp?) was doing a dinner from one of the provinces of France. It was really creative, there was a lot of food and the prices were really fair for how much... More

I had lunch with friends at this small French cafe. It was delicious. I couldn't believe I was in Albuquerque! The service was great as was the food. We sat and chatted and. Hatred and just like in paris, we weren't rushed at all. The escargot were to die for. Great garlic! Mussels in wine and shallots fresh and juicy.... More

The only thing keeping this place open is the feel of possibly being in France. Until you try the food..... All they do is stuff you with bread. We are extremely disappointed. The only non-alcoholic beverage was MILK??
