Visited this place for lunch. Found the place very simple and homely. Prices are overhyped . For a baguette, cordon blue sandwich, 2 juice paid 975/- which I found was too expensive..food ok , service ok.

Amazing place. Very nice owner and lovely food. I would say it is a must visit. Also check for timings before visiting as i think they close a little early. French cuisine is what you get here.

Place looks great but wasn't satisfied with the service or the food or the washroom. There was only one waiter who was overly occupied and most of the items that we wanted from the menu wasn't available. I really don't understand the hype for this...More

The resturant is simple and modest. The prices are not high but it’s worth a try. I thoroughly enjoyed the food and the taste. The quantity was generous and seating is rustic old look. The building is a big old constructed and looks well maintained....More

I only popped in here for a short pit-stop: a short rest and a quick cup of coffee. Service was good (if a tiny bit indifferent), and the coffee was good. I’d definitely go back for a more extended and relaxed visit.
