The restaurant is small and quaint with an open kitchen design where it is completely visible from the restaurant if one wanted to stand at the the counter and watch. I believe it is a husband and wife team where she works the front and he cooks.
Not knowledgeable about french food I opted for the Foie Gras au Torchon and the Confit de Canard, a first for both, while my wife had the Saumon Fumé Maison and the Morue Poelée Sauce Coco et Curry.
Prior to getting our appetizer we were brought a very simple yet elegant hourderve of trout on a chip type cracker. I don't know how the trout was prepared but I can say it was to die for.
When the appetizers came, the Foie Gras was 3 rounds, along with a pinch each of of pepper,chives, and onion along side, as well as a couple pieces of crispy toasted bread or wafer of sorts. I have to say I was quite impressed. The flavor was very delicate with a very rich smooth texture. It is not something I would order regularly but I am glad I had it.
The salmon was lox style and while the flavor was very good, the texture was a little odd that it was slightly rubbery. And although it came with a small portion of a delicious cucumber coleslaw of sorts, there were no wafers or such to eat it with.
The Duck Confit came served on a bed of lentils which were prepared very well. Having now seen pictures here on TA, the duck unfortunately was WAY over done. We thought it was but didn't know better at the time. The outside portion while very tasty, was very dry. And given duck legs are not big, there was not a lot of moist meat inside.
The Curried cod came served with eggplant which was very good, and polenta which was delicious. The curry was exceptional as it was very mild which went well with the cod. My wife thought there was too much pepper on the cod however. The bit that I tried must have missed the outside coating as I didn't notice it.
All in all we enjoyed our dinner but obviously can't compare it to other french cuisine. The environment is very inviting and prices are reasonable.
