Wonderful food and friendly service. Its food you can eat and you can get a goid explanation for your palate There is parking help as street can get busy. Street can be a bit seedy so get gps reference and stop in front of restaurant to get valet help.

We had a good dinner here this weekend. Service was good but staff lacked knowledge of the wine list. The filet of beef was excellent, the lamb and escargot were pretty good too. Will return the next time in JB, good value for money.

Nice restaurant with authentic French cuisine. Good atmosphere with nice and very well trained staff. In regards of cost it's more on the pricy side. Parking may be at time a problem.

They have specials every day. The frois de gras melts in your mouth - although 82Myr is a bit too steep in my opinion for that dish which is only an appetizer. Duck brest preparation was great and worth the money - about 70 MYR or so.. French onion soup was okey... And we had another 2 small dishes -... More

I loved the ambience, the authenticity of the food and the warm service of the waitress. It was not too dimly lit and the background music was not disturbing. We called and booked a table so all was fine when we arrived.

Chez papa stood out because it wasn't in a large international hotel. Lucky for me on the very rare occasion I am not wearing the banned flip flops was the day I turned up. Went to the loo first and it looked a bit grim (see photo) If this is the front of house what is it like behind the... More

We know there are little choice of good fine dining @ JB. After browsing through some reviews, we decided to try this 17 years old restaurant. A wise decision. No regrets. Great French cuisine, awesomely done. We paired with a good bottle of red, heavenly. Friendly and professional owner cum chef - Shereen Friendly and experienced waitress - Ivy Dessert... More

Every time we get a chance to go up to JB is never complete without dinner in CP. What makes it unique is that l could lay back and enjoy my favorite wine while the Chef is able to create my favorite dishes at a timely manner. Serene and Dominic make a perfect combination between the whats being cooked and... More

I have visited Chez Papa several times, since a very young age and till now, I always have the most enjoyable times. The staff are very charismatic and their enthusiasm to engage with you in conversations is truly comforting. Food is without doubt heavenly. Foie gras, Fillet Mignon & Chocolate Mousse - my 3 staples. No debate on consistency. The... More

Many thanks to Ivy who had made special arrangement for my hubby's birthday. The food is nice especially foie grais is really fantastic! We love the ambience and staff are friendly too. The price we paid is reasonable in terms of quality steak and wine. Ice cream was on the house but only realised that when we reached home! Thanks... More
