“If this is France, please get me a passport”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

Friendly owner and/or staff greets you when you enter. Refreshing menu, with many choices: soups to salads, sandwiches to gourmet fare. Best churrasco ever. Early bird specials are a true treat, and a bargain to boot. We must support this family-owned/operated gem.

“Tasty Entrees of Chicken & Beef”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

Been a regular for years. The daily luncheon specials for $8 are a true bargain! A warm basket of bread is always presented. Salads, sandwiches, and soups are fresh. Seafood is not up to par--avoid any. Homey atmosphere & good service.

“Solve this puzzle but it may take few visits”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2012

This restaurant is a little confusing but worth trying to solve the puzzle with several visits, .could this be a marketing tool to keep you comming?

The name is obviously French, good plus onion soup, excellent scagots and some French style salads and sandwiches, even better Italian entrees and since the owners are Argentinan there is a good churrasco and outstanding panqueque if this does not confuse you enough, they offer side dish of white rice to accommodate Cuban clientele.


Their lunch menu is downright a bargain, good quality daily specials for less that $ 8.00, you could not do this at your freindly fast food place.

Dinner is a bit more with more generous portions but they still offer daily evening special that are very reasonably priced.

But there is more, no corkage fee for those that are fans of Bacco, you add a friendly service and attitude with a pleasant bistro like atmosphere and you have a winner that regulars visit several times a month, after a few visits you begin to see familiar faces.

One worthy observation is you may hear the owner call his wife, who is the chef, bruja (whitch in Spanish) not to be taken as an insult, this is an Argentinian "honey" .and the confusions goes on and on.

Try it you'll like it.
