“A secret slice of Europe in Capitol”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

At first, I was skeptic on trying out this place because of the location, however, upon trying out their food, let's just say I take more visits now. I especially like their lasagna, which is a true winner in its own right! It's the only place in Cebu that I know that sells cannelloni. The macaroons are pretty good too, though I don't have a sweet tooth. The owner regularly bakes them himself! I had their fish fillet and some pasta. Pretty good servings :) Downside is...their kitchen is directly connected to the dining area, so there's a very big chance that you'll come out smelling what you ate. Other than that, their food is yummy!

“A monumental bistro outside of France.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012 via mobile

A nice discovery in Cebu. A lovely place to have a snack, espresso and desert. I would certainly say this is the best bread I've had outside of France. The crusty baguette's, flaky croissant's...I can certainly go on, but come taste the best bread in Cebu. Oh! Do yourself a favor, take home a half dozen melt in your mouth macarons, your palate will thank-you after it surrenders to the burst of flavors.

“Great sandwiches!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2012

All their sandwiches are awesome! Tried them all and will recommend them all. My favorite is the Normandy which has brie, lettuce, apple, french mustard and raisins.

“affordable French fusion food!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2012

We found this place one evening when we were looking for a restaurant with a different twist to dine in. We saw the French chef and thought it might be an expensive place but we were attracted with the sign "Menu of the Day-P250" that included salad, rice, fillet of fish for that day (could be porkchop, etc), dessert and tea. The food was prepared the French way but infused with local flavor and it was just heavenly! Aside from the blueberry and lemon cheesecakes, we also tried their macarons that blended very well with brewed coffee. The place is cozy, about 10-12 tables and it gets filled with foreigners and Filipinos as well. Parking is free up to 2 hours. The owner, Remi, is very friendly and makes it a point to go around tables to check on his customers. Highly recommended!
