“Our favourite restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

I do believe this is now closed - if I am wrong please let me know as this is our all time favourite place in Darwin - service, food, atmosphere, everything was beautiful about this Restaurant and have been celebrating our anniversary's over the years there - was sad to hear it had closed.

this restaurant is now closed - which is sad as it was very good and unique. end of story. I cannot say anymore as it speaks for itself so I cannot do 100 characters of review!

“Brilliant little French restaurant tucked away”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2012

If you didn't know it was there, you'd miss this low-key and delighful little French restaurant in the leafy back streets of Darwin. Great food. Great wine. Great ambience. The service is... very French. Well-kept local secret.

“Always Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2011

The title says it all. This is unique dining for Darwin. Christine, the host, is a gem - full of charecter and a bit quirky, just like the restaurant. I have been there several times and yet to see her husband, the chef. I believe he slaves away in the background to make any meal special. One downside is that I do not recommend going if you are on a diet. This is good old fashioed food, cooked and served with love. Brilliant for a special occasion.
