“Top Quality French Fresh Food with Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

We went Last Night with a group of Five and enjoyed Lobster and Steak with good Red wine . It was truly first class . It is not expensive as some may think and our total with the excellent Deserts and 3 bottles of wine included was less than $AUD 100.00 per person . This was our third visit and each one has been a first class experience . The service was very attentive in An Authentic Atmosphere

“Great Views, Tasty Authentic French Food - try it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2014

We had a small girls celebration dinner here and found the food and service to be excellent. Take your Hotspots voucher book as you get free dessert here (chocolate soufle!) which means the overall meal price is reasonable for the great quality of food you get. Loved that you could buy champaign by the glass as this is a rare treat and great way to start the night. Definitely a must do in Vila.

“Comme à Santo: bon, cher, et mauvais service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

I visited Jardin des Saveurs again now that they are located in Vila. The experience (and dishes) are similar to when they were in Santo. It is definitely good, but definitely expensive too.
The big issue remains - terrible service. Expect to be almost kicked out around 9pm :)

“Authentic French restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014

The restaurant was just like a cafe in Lyon. The food was very tasty and the steak was cooked to perfection. The chocolate soufflé is a must. The service was excellent and the staff very friendly. The chef who comes from Lyon came out of the kitchen at the end of our meal to see if everything was good. A 'must eat here' restaurant.

“A totally enjoyable experience to celebrate a special occasion”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2014

Our group of six were holidaying together at Breakas Resort to celebrate 2 birthdays, one of which was a 60th. We had asked at the resort for a recommendation for a special dinner and Le Jardin was the choice selected. We had an amazing experience from the moment we walked in. A beautifully presented restaurant with an award winning french chef providing exquisite meals. Yes, it is expensive, but for a special event this was what one would expect. The waitresses were delightful and the maitre d' provided us with a clear appraisal of what was available, what dishes comprised of etc. and they were all very attentive. Everyone was delighted with their choice of meals (from snails, prawns, steak etc). The only disappointment was that we were hoping to try Coconut Crab, but apart from this being out of season on the island, this restaurant does not serve it as a conscious choice because of conservation. The menu is extensive and there are so many delicious choices.
We had a surprise special birthday chocolate mousse cake served for the 'birthday boy' which we all sampled and it was incredible. They also gave us a complimentary glass of bubbles to celebrate.
The owner was delightful and shared with us some of her artwork she had done for an exhibition. The walls of the restaurant, lamps etc are some of her beautiful 'sand' pictures, which depict her love of jazz, and we only wish we had been able to bring one home with us.
Thank you all for a wonderful night.
