The first was also my last visit. Horrible food. Horrible service. The patron was rude when I complained about his 'bisque' saying that it's 'French' style. What it was is a sorry excuse for a soup made of stock from boiled shells and a bit...More

The infamous Bibi is back in Saigon!!! Specialize in French Mediterranean, you will sure find Bibi around to recommend his daily specials from the market on a daily basis . "Cousine de Marcher" is all but fresh produce from the market which Bibi himself selects as daily specials . The favorites such as steak tartare is prepared at your table , also cotes de boeuf enough for two !!
