La Maison Rose is a cute French restaurant with an outdoor only setting. The appetizers were good, main course was ok. Service was alright. Overall, I think this place is slightly over-hyped; nothing to write home about.

Visited for lunch, the quality of food varied from average to good. The cocktail and vegetarian food was pathetic. Though we ordered very basic items from the menu. Grilled tiger prawns were good. Nothing much to write about service, very average.

We found this cute little garden restaurant by accident as it was close to where we were staying at Le Dupleix. We dropped in for a cup of after dinner coffee & dessert. The dessert, recommended by the waiter was a disastrous cheesecake. The taste was bad and the presentation even worse...it was almost collapsing!! Perhaps we were just not... More

Open, relaxed ambience. Kids can be out of your hair while you enjoy your food. We liked their salads. Starters are somewhat frugal in serving size. But sandwiches were good. A tad pricey.

When we entered our expectations were pretty high, we really loved the cozy feeling that we got in the beautiful outdoor sitting area of this restaurant. Food was really bad. Even the Bloody Mary that I ordered, lacked real flavour and it was served in a very ordinary small glass!

Really enjoyed our dinner here this evening. From the welcoming entrance to the colonial garden surrounds and friendly local staff - not to mention the wine prices being a little bit less than the norm - all good.

We had been walking around exploring and it was a delight to find the peace of the garden. We only had a drink - a Caravelle iced Tea which was refreshing - and a beer. Relaxing and mighty fine.
