“Very poor price/quality ratio”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

The food is nothing special compared to many other restaurants in Guangzhou. I have had some different tries on the menu and it was just food, that's it. I experienced great examples of serving food in a beautiful way in China. They don't bother here. Just food on a plate....

The service is a little poor. The owner and the staff have little clue how to make a guest more comfortable than in a fast food restaurant. They want to take away your half full plates. If you are dining slow, they just take everything of the table except your last bite so they hope you make place for new guests which might show up before you actually finished.

The Chinese people might have the idea they are up for a special French treat, but in fact you just overpay for a very normal dinner.

You have so many much better choices in Guangzhou!

“quintessentially French”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

With the interior feeling of a Frency county home, the food is authentically French with great indoor or garden seating. The attentive manager with a delightful French accent and the host ensure that the experience meets expectations. All the dishes are excellent, from beef burgundy, lamb, fish, salads, bountious appetizers, to pasta to pizza, to the burnt creme (of course) with appropriate wines to accompany.

“A Fabulous French Restaurant in Guangzhou”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

The food here is usually amazing. The service is great, but I think the menu is only in Chinese and French. However, some of the servers speak English and can help you. there are photos of the food as we.. The meals are pricey as is the wine list, but really have enjoyed a number of meals there.

“Nice evening here.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

I came here last year and really enjoyed my evening. The owner chatted to me for a bit and it was a really nice place. Good food - unlike some of the comments I had good food while I was here and a nice atmosphere.
