Had a surprised anniversary dinner there, was arranged by husband. However, to my horror, the furniture at the second floor is in bad shape. Some chairs are in wobbly condition and a broken sofa is there for guests to sit. I would not come back...More

Dig in the starter with the pan seared scallop, oysters, and entrée with sea bass and beef tenderloin. Finished with the tiramisu and chocolate cake. Total divine at this place. Parking can be a challenge.

Tucked away in a corner off the beaten track in the city, lies this gem of a find. Dimly lit French-styled bistro with lovely service. Well priced set menus and good food. Restaurant is a bit tired though and can perhaps be refreshed. When making...More

no pork on the menu.
I have visited this restaurant since their early days in 2002, when I was quite young. Had several visits with my bunch of Wolfie friends. We enjoyed the place and as for me, it was an exciting new experience of exposure o one of the cities I intend o visit. French music was played all the time, old and latest collection. I became acquainted it with Ben and Toto; two entrepreneurs who had pent one time in Europe. Cafe cafe has always gave me an exclusive feel, a romantic and personal environment and service. It was a good environment. It is sad that when I went o visit during the late afternoon tht there are always closed since I m or king early recently, I wa thinking of dropping by. I hope they will still be there some of these days. I will keep dropping by and hoping. Ps: Ben, Toto, thank you for introducing for being the first to providing me French cuisine that thirteen years back. 'Katak or Kodok'?
