“Classic French with owner/Chef always there”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

Really liked the escargot, the sweetbreads, the watermelon and arugula salad, the Caesar salad. Want to go back to try the veal Osso buco. Crepe Suzette was prepared table side- great desert.
Special mention of our waitress MAGGIE. She is great. Ask for her. The frog legs were so so. The sauce was good but the legs were a little too frog tasting.

“Fabulous French Cuisine & Wonderful Gluten Free Selections”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

My husband has lived in France and loves to find a good French restaurant. He was in heaven to eat authentic French cuisine. I was in heaven having Gluten Free choices. The gluten free bread was the best I have ever eaten! The gluten free chocolate cake was amazing. We ate here several times and will absolutely be back when in the Carmel area. Every main dish we ordered was cooked to perfection, served by very professional wait staff and the atmosphere was very pleasant.

“A little bit of France in California”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013 via mobile

I had been wanting to eat on many excursions to Carmel and finally made it happen. So glad I did. Exactly what I was expecting and was completely satisfied.

Service-Very good. Prompt. Knowledgeable. Helpful.

Food-Very good to excellent. The table had a variety of dishes. Smoked Salmon. Frog Legs. Filet mignon. Croque Monsieur. Frites. Gluten-Free Pizza. All the dishes were well prepared, presented and tasty. I would recommend them all. Two standouts were: 1. The frites that came with the Croquet Monsieur. Very delicate and perfectly fried. Scrumptious. 2. The Gluten-Free Pizza. I'm not a gf or celiac, however my wife eats gf and this was the best gf pizza I've ever had. Nearly the whole menu can be prepared gf, so if you are go here!

Wine-Good list. Excellent prices.

Atmosphere-Love it! You felt like you've been transported to the Mediterranean coast.

Overall-Highly recommended.

“Excellent choice for a dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

We visited Carmel during afternoon and stopped by this restaurant for an early family dinner. Maggie our waitress was magnificent so was the owner. Food was really good with a very efficient service. The whole family loved it and recommend it. Atmosphere was very nice. Worth the money we paid. Enjoy it.

“Celebrate”

Chef Jean knows how to cook. His sauces are perfect. Went there for a special birthday this week and was treated like VIP. Most memorable.
