I have visited this brasserie several times with my wife mainly during occasions. The place is nicely decorated and reminds French restaurant but needed to be warmer. The staff is very friendly. The mussels are delicious, I was less impressed by the meat plates. The French wines selected by the owner are tasty. The prices could have been better. Overall, this place is an oasis of French gastronomy within Nicosia but certainly needs improvements.

First time here, to celebrate our anniversary and it felt as if we were dining in a brasserie somewhere in France. Les escargots de bourgogne were appetizing, as well as the homemade garlic butter and the fresh baguette. The steak and the duck were delicious and cooked to perfection. Les profiteroles could be more more fresh, but that is a minor issue. Service was impeccable. We'll be back!

Thank you Sissy for your kind words ;
We are glad you have enjoyed your night which was special to you. Sorry you had the impression that the profiteroles lacked of freshness ; I can assure you it was not the case but as they are home made, according to climatic conditions (high temperatures in Cyprus to make things easy), some pastry we make may not raise as expected and leave this impression.
Don't hesitate to mention it on your next visit so we can offer you another portion of satisfactory profiteroles on the house.
We will be happy to welcome you back in a near future !
