“Excellent French cafe/wine bar”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2013

We went last night after we'd been around Maenam Walking Street and had a lovely meal. It's not always open so it is a bit hit and miss, but the food is great. Not a huge menu, bavette, carpaccio, smoked salmon, duck, pork, great fried potatoes with garlic and parsley and nicely dressed salad and it's very much a French cafe/wine bar, with nice seating outside which is under a porch so under cover in case it rains! Wine is very reasonable (120 bht glass or half or full carafe). You can also sit inside at the bar where the patron chats with his friends - it is very French! We've been a few times last year and will definitely be back.

“French Wine Bar with excellent dishes”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

Don't expect a french restaurant, it's just a small wine bar with a few but special snacks. Nice atmosphere, friendly patron... We liked it very much!
