“Wonderful Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

We had a few opportunities to go to Café de Paris, juste after the soft opening and we always had a great experience. The French chef is very inventive and always offered us some tasting bids while we were preparing to order.
For the first visit, the menu was a little limited, but we could understand that at the start all could not be available.
On our next visit, for a special "Duck" dinner, we really felt like in France.
The "Foie Gras" was perfect, and originally served with various Duck Paté and Mango Chutney.
We could just complain that it was too much for a stater, and we had difficulties finishing the next dish.
Our third visit saw a special French dish promotion. Cassoulet. Maybe not a typical dish for We had a few opportunities to go to Café de Paris, just after the opening and we always had a great experience.

Our third visit saw a special French dish promotion. “Cassoulet”.
Maybe not a typical dish for Manila, but as the weather was not too nice outside, we really enjoyed it. The presentation was as we could expect in a restaurant in Toulouse. A large dish, for two or four persons. Like this the food could stay warm. We complained again, that we could not finish. And also I mentioned to the owner that he should not give so much meat with his Cassoulet and give us more of the beans. But this was a minor problem.
If on the first visit we complained a little about the staff serving us, not been able to note our orders properly, we saw some improvement on the next visit. The menu is written in French with small characters in English. So for us it was easier.
Our children also enjoyed true Brittany salty Galettes. A real gala dinner for them. And now they ask us to go again as soon as possible.
I would recommend this venue as one new true French restaurant for Manila.

“Food that's so bad I had to write about it.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

Dined here with a couple of friends and we were all terribly disappointed with the quality of the food. The beef bourguignon was extremely salty to the point of being inedible so we had to send it back. We replaced it with what was essentially a steak frites (can't recall what they called it on the menu), and the fries were too salty again while the beef was bland and too tough (so difficult to cut through and chew). The coq au vin was equally disappointing (sent that back too). The lasagna was the most edible entree we had, which isnt saying much considering that the noodles were dry and tough. No points for aesthetics either, it's too bad I wasn't able to take a picture of the coq au vin and beef bourguignon, both of which looked downright unappetizing.

At about a thousand pesos per head, you're much better off elsewhere.
