“Great atmosphere , unique setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

Great food. The chef is French and so is the owner. The menu is varied and there is an effort to have a weekly special. The wine list is full of delicious French wines. The chef will accommodate special wishes given advance notice.

“DON'T MISS”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

If you really like good food and are in Santo Domingo do not miss this place. Ambiance is right out of Basque country as are the recipies. Squid...very tender...in a garlicky, Provencel or whole
fish grilled with a light tomato sauce. Big wine list.....but mostly French. Separate cocktail bar. Opens at 7PM for dinner.

“A nice surprise !!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013 via mobile

I went there as the restaurant has a good e-marketing campaign and I frequently received its week specials via mail. When I read the last one, I decided to explore the restaurant and try its food.
The restaurant is in the colonial zone as dominicans called it. Simple and cozy.
The sangria to start was made from scratches. Very good and fresh with natural ingredients.
The mouzzaka as an appetizer was good.
The codornices or guinea hens(3) were very good.
The restaurant allows cigar smoking and as a matter of fact, is a perfect place for a bottle of champagne or good wine and a cigar. Later on an unpretentious dinner. Voila !!

“overpriced, but not bad”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

I was one of maybe 5 diners there on a Monday night. Very good service, food was decent, but overpriced. Owner was quite friendly.

“Nice and quiet restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

Good food, good service and beautiful decor !
Good French cuisine. Not a top notch eating place, but the atmosphere is nice and relaxed and the food is on a par.
Discretely hidden, not easy to find.
