“Do yourself a favor and go!”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

There is a reason this little gem has been around for 30+ years. Who ever said the French were arrogant had certainly not met Michel, the owner. Great French cuisine paired with warm and friendly staff make this place one of my favorites. Don't forgot to request a window seat and bon appetit!

“Nice quiet French Restaurant”
Reviewed June 19, 2012

Had lovely special dinner here tonight. It is nice to find a quiet restaurant where you can have a conversation in pleasant surroundings. The large windows offer a view of Vancouver Harbour and Stanley Park. While it is on the second floor it is well worth the climb to enjoy delicious French cooking. The menu is not extensive, but there are choices in red meats and poultry and many seafood options. The calves liver was excellent tonight as was the rack of lamb. Some other offerings include kidney, rabbit and sweetbreads. A pleasant surprise is the wine list which is priced quite moderately compared to other restaurants in the area.

“Great”
Reviewed October 6, 2011

Food was perfect, and the server was knowlegable and prompt. Her suggestions were right on and while being fine dining it wasn't over-the-top price wise.
