We enjoyed the bouillabaisse, steak and fish. The frites were thin, golden and crisp. The dessert of profiteroles was a generous serve and delicious. The owner, Melanie, is a charming host who took great care of us all evening. A lovely experience again.

After reading such amazing reviews for this place, we went with high expectations. I'm still at a loss as to why people like this place. The food is very average, lacking finesse and care and no-way near French. We ordered the Pepper Steak and the...More

Dear SylG050, Thank you for taking the time to review us... I am very disappointed to read that you have not enjoyed our food. You mention bland food, that is very unusual for our cuisine. Being hot is good... I rather have it too hot...More
