We had dinner here on New Year's Eve, and we had a wonderful time. We had some french classics (Escargots and Moules), and they were just great. The patio on the back has a very nice atmosphere as well. But for us, the best thing was the staff: all of them. Service was excellent, from the owner down to the... More

Loved our breakfast of coffee and french toast and the best herbed omelette! We lingered here during a downpour and enjoyed the people watching from the terrace! Clean, fresh, well presented breakfast!

You can seat on a patio right on Calle Centauro or in garden in the back which is very pleasant, shady, and nicely decorated. I had a rice salad with fresh tuna with abundant and tasty ingredients. The rice was well cooked, a nice change from the sticky Mexican rice. Service was very friendly but a bit slow.

I get the most affordable and awesome French good from ex-pats in Latin America! I would drove $100 min in the United States for these types of meals. We went there twice and it was excellent both times. It is also on a side street with lots of other small places and they had a concert in the street one... More

We were traveling 15 minutes by car every morning to have a breakfast at this restaurant. We could not start the day without having to stop by this restaurant. The food, the coffe, the Staff, the ambiance, just what you need to have a great day.

Just off the main road tucked down a side street is this little gem - really not what we expected to find! Fantastic food with a varied menu, great service, and very reasonably priced to boot. It's definitely on my revisit list - highly recommended.

We had the Moules Marines and the Tournedos, which was both awesome. The meat was perfectly cooked to my liking, medium rare. Sorry to say, many seem to skip this place because its a little more pricey and dont have cheap alcohol like many other places.

We waited 35 minutes for two crepes, which were nothing more then OK. Restaurant was half empty, so the kitchen wasn't super busy. One positive thing was our waiter, who very nice and helpful. Unfortunately, I would not return here.

Although you can sit on the street Bistro style....the back patio was our favourite. Very quite and beautifully done it really added to the ambiance. The food was so uniquely done it really surprised us. I had the chicken in mushrooms sauce with a garlic/cheese crusting and my wife had their crepes...these are exactly what you would expect from a... More
