First, the restaurant opens at 6:30, and not before. We arrived a bit early and were seated in the "lobby", although it is a very pleasant lobby. Several love seats, comfortable chairs, coffee tables, with an elegant feeling. Ordered a couple of Haitian rum fruit punches while we waited. Shortly after 6:30, our waiter, a wonderful Frenchman, brought us menus and a description of the specials. We expected to be taken to a table, but instead we ordered where we were. He also brought some bread to where we were waiting.
15 minutes later, we were taken to our table, and shortly after, the food was served. The food was fabulous, and the presentation was just as good.
Thought we had a server that watched us as we ate, he didn't seem to understand his role. We both ran out of water, and he did not feel it his responsibility to bring us more water until we asked.
We couldn't pass up the chance to try the chocolate fondue for dessert, and Americans would call what we were served "chocolate mousse". Whatever the name, it was decadent and delicious.
After tip, the bill came to $110 for two. However, the quality of the restaurant rivels a top end restaurant in any American city. It was worth it to us.

This is by far the best restaurant in Haiti and maybe of the Caribbeans. The owners (French) make sure everything is correct. The food is exquisite. They have specials almost everyday in addition to the wonderful menu. Can be a bit pricey, count around $50 to $60 a person for appetizer, main dish, dessert and wine.. but all worth it.

very tasty food, typical "small " portions, expensive. located in the heart of Petion-Ville (area especially populated with restaurants and NGO offices after the earthquake). Very nice atmosphere - you will definitely yourself anywhere but in Haiti
