“Merci, Monsieur! Delicieux!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012

Excellent experience. Located at the boutique Hotel Club Frances, this small and quiet restaurant will serve you excelent food with a very nice service. The price is in range with upscale restaurants located on the area. I was very pleased with my food (grilled tilapia with ratatouille) and with the service.

“BEAUTIFUL ATMOSPHERE, EXCELLENT FOOD”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012

This is my neighborhood restaurant! The food is excellent, the atmosphere is superb and the dining experience is easy going so long as you have time to be patient. I have eaten fish and filet mignon (lomo) in the Club Frances and have never been disappointed. The cuisine here is serious and of a high level, and moreover, is fairly priced. I have waited a long time for a restaurant of this caliber in my neighborhood and I finally have a place which I find acceptable without having to go to other sectors of the city.

Mr Ezini, thank you very much for your comments, it took us 5 years of restauration to keep the much valued history and style of the building, so we highly appreciate that our customers can perceive it.

“Good food but overpriced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2012

We went for lunch and had the fixed menu. As an appetizer we had soup al ognion and then the fish of the day(white salmon) with ratatouille. For dessert ice cream selection. Without wine(which was expensive) we paid $40 each. The place is cool and located in a nice area of the city and the service was reasonable. Probably the price for dinner is more expensive as the fixed menu we had was for lunch only.

Varyvolt, our Menu Legere which is served for lunch does include a glass of wine and costs 3/4 of what you mention. Yo can enjoy the same dishes at night for the same price but drinks are not included. You can also enjoy much more elaborate dishes that blend the French and Argentine cuisine.
Thank you for your valuable opinion!
