This French restaurant in Wan Chai is conveniently located on Hong Kong Island. Although the building where it’s tucked away in is not the easiest to find, but the restaurant staffs are very helpful in pointing you the right way, and they have an informative website which is also useful.
Upon arrival, I was immersed by the warmth and hominess of the décor and the light music. The seats are quite roomy. I felt very comfortable.
My buddy is a big fan of seafood, we ordered seafood platter, half dozen oyster and deep fried frog leg! We also ordered Foie Gras, Crab Bisque, Confit (Duck Leg) and Cherry Claufoutis (YUM YUM)
Seafood platter consists of edible crab, whelk, clams and a good amount of shrimp. They all very fresh, but Edible crab was our favorite, there is so much yolk and it goes very well with the 3 kinds of homemade sauce that comes with the dish.
The oysters are freshly arrived from France. It was good, it's just a bit too salty for my personal taste.
Foie Gras was served with some mixed berry and just a splash of sauce. It was a great match - the foie gras tasted so good, I really didn't want to share with my buddy
Confit de Carnard was excellent! The duck leg lay on top of a bed of sauerkraut, the skin was thin and crispy, yet the meat remained very juicy and tender. We cleaned the plate.
Before dessert was served, the live band started playing jazz, and later on a lady came on and sang some classics. (The waiter told us they will have live music every Tuesday night, and the band plays a mix of jazz and modern classics.)
Just when I thought I don't have any room left for dessert, the waiter brought out Cherry Claufoutis (hot dish).... Whao, it smells like freshly baked cake just coming out of the oven... we are chowing again
Something worth mentioning - there is no corkage fees. Of course we took advantage of that and brought our own wine.
All in all, it was an enjoyable night - good company, good food, good music.
