Elegant place with great service and delicious food. I had roasted beets, goat cheese and arugula as an appetizer which I have ordered out and actually made at home before. These were the best beets I ever had. I went with the duck with mushroom...More

Crisp Albarino, unctuous beetroot salad and on point tuna a la plancha in a charming dining room made for a memorable experience. We'll be back!

This place is dark. We went with seven people and the food was average but the service was very slow. We had to hunt down our waiter many times. The restaurant adds a tip of 15% so the wait staff is indifferent regarding good service.

Went for dinner. The restaurant is really dark and I wasn’t the only one using the flashlight on my phone to read the menu. I had a couple of gorgeous cocktails followed by a really uncomposed wedge salad. It might appeal to some people to...More

The best wine all trip (even though we ordered one of the cheaper ones). Steak done "medium rare" just the way we like it; best French fries we have had -- willing to take a combination of Guatemalan currency and a credit card.More

My wife and I enjoy local cuisine, but decided to take a break and enjoy some French food. We were not disappointed. The restaurant definitely has the feel of a french bistro complete with Edith Piaf and other French music playing. We started with escargot,...More
