“Better than in France....”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

I've travelled a lot and eaten in so many so called french restaurant all over the planet that I did not expect too much about this one...
However, I've been very impressed by everything.
Very professional service, excellent food with genuine french products well cooked, lovely atmosphere...
I wish all restaurants would be like this in France....

“ok place to have lunch ...”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

Well this place has been opened for a while and we were recommended by friends who used to have good experience there for lunch. We came to try for a small group of 4.
The restaurant is nice, like a bistro. But be aware that there is no different for non-smoking of smoking and a bit hot.
Service was fine, not up to standard! Food was just ok. Nothing impressed!
A good place to have lunch with friends but do not expect too much ...

“overestimated”
Reviewed April 19, 2013

they offer a cup of champagne but if you don't drink alcool nothing is given. the portion are small for the high price. the atmosphere is terrible, with a noisy music that you can not understand each other. I took a steak tartare but not well prepared and without capers? sorry is not worth is reputation.

“Nice ambiance ok food”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

Stopped by with my wife for dinner. Typical bistro atmosphere, a bit noisy and crowded but it was quite warm and for non smokers beware where we sat smoking was allowed indoors. Several of the dishes were great particularly the French onion soup, my ribeye with fries, and my wife's oysters and foie gras. We were disappointed in the seafood linguini. Overall we will probably try it again but would not give it a strong recommendation.

“Why was it so hot? The mussels were good though.”
Reviewed April 15, 2013 via mobile

Not a bad option. Recommend the mussels. Had a weird experience with the wine. We ordered one and the waiter came back with the one we ordered and another to consider that was twice as expensive. Stuck with our original choice. The space is really hot so if you're looking for an escape from the heat, suggest a different place.
