“WOW!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2013

This is french cuisine at its best!

Try the pepper steak, The beef is tender and cooked perfectly. I ordered
my steak BLUE which many steakhouses can never get right. Almost
always is overcooked. But not here. And the pepper sauce was outsatnding.

My wife had fish and swooned about it as well.

Service was high class and very attentive.

Prices are high but the value was excellent!

“great place for brunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2013

beautiful setting for Sunday brunch. Great food for a reasonable price. Also has very good dinner options. As with most very good Guatemala City restaurants, it's hidden away in a walled shopping center but the garden/courtyard makes for a great setting.

“Great Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2013

Great ambiance and fantastic food.

The salmon is fresh and cooked perfectly. The pepper steak is
a superb cut of beef. Tender and juicy. Cooked exactly as ordered.
The fench fries are unique too. I´m sure they are made on premices.

Excellent service too!!!!

“Steaks!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

We went to Jean Francois afetr reviewing
Trip Advisor.

At the advise of others we had the pepper steak.

I ordered mine blue and my wife medium well.
Both were done perfectly which is unusual in
Guatemala when looking for a very, very rare steak.

Steaks were tender and the pepper sauce very tasty.-

Good value for this level of food and great service too.
