The first time we ate at this restaurant I was very impressed. It was our anniversary and after driving past many times we decided to give it a go. We both chose the set menu which was really good value for 3 courses and wine. All of the courses impressed me and I couldn't wait to go back again. French cuisine is a welcome change from the many Italian and Korean restaurants here in Cebu. Unfortunately the next time we went the food was not as special. This time I chose the set menu again but the main course was huge and not that tasty, my partner chose a la carte, the same main that we'd eaten last time but it wasn't the same standard.
The staff were friendly and helpful though. Of course when you pay more for your food you expect the standard to be higher. I want this restaurant to be good as my first experience was memorable and I will definitely give it another chance, maybe the main chef was not there by chance or something like that. As to ordering with an ipad, I found that to be a be a bit fussy and a bit of a gimmick but my partner thought it was good as you could see pictures of all the foods. The décor is an interesting mix of colonial French with Asian influences with little touches everywhere that you can discover by chance which adds to the ambiance. But if you come by car beware that the parking is terrible, there's very little room and all the cars are constantly having to move to let others out. On our second visit we had to park on the highway.
