“A piece of Paris at Puerto Rico”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2012

Food was excellent. The owners are from France so no wonder the food was superb. We love the ambiance, very romantic. On sunday they have a brunch that is so delicious.

“SURPRISINGLY GOOD!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2012

I was quite surprised to discover this French restaurant in the heart of Santurce. Usually this type of restaurant is located in the Condado or Old San Juan, but fortunately it's away from the tourist areas. The food and service are excellent. They have daily specials and the prices are within reason. I had the fresh trout, grilled to perfection. My husband had the grilled salmon wrapped in proshuitto. We also ordered the escargot as an appetizer and they were delicious. You don't need reservations, but I suggest getting there early as it fills up quite fast. It's within walking distance of the Centro de Bellas Artes, so you can have a meal before going to the theatre or concert. Very chic decor and cozy atmosphere.

“Excellent french food in San Juan”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2012

A beautiful restaurant, with excellent service and french menu. Love the steak with pepper and french fries. Just across the street to the Museo de Arte de Puerto Rico. Perfect place to have lunch or dinner. Many locals enjoy it, so call and make a reservation if you wish to go during the weekend.
