“Consistently excellent”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

We have been there 3 times using groupon deals. The restaurant is very modernly decorated in black and white. The staff are attentive and knowledgeable. The food is modern French. The first courses are delightful and varied, showing off the chef's imagination. The main courses vary from creative and excellent such as the Ris de Veau to the entrecote (rib eye) steak which was highly enjoyed by my dining partners but my position on steak is that the quality of the meat is more important than the skills of the chef. In short, a great restaurant which has maintained its standards over the past half year we have been patronizing it.

“One of the best French restaurants in Tel-Aviv”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

We have been there through a coupon promotion deal. Got a tasting menu for two which included 5 starters, 2 main dishes, few deserts and a bottle of wine (a lot of great food). The food was absolutely great, the service was professional and the atmosphere was like abroad. One of the best French cuisine restaurants in Tel Aviv. I heard they are serving also great and affordable business lunch too, worth to try.

“Very nice Parisian restaurant in a neglected part of Tel-Aviv”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

We tried the tastings menu (through a coupon) on a Saturday lunch and were very pleased.
The meal included some great starters:
House bread with dips (Tehina, olive oil, eggplant) which was fresh and good; Knafeh with lamb and goat cheese, which was very unique; truffle souffle with chèvre cheese which was splendid; beet salad with goat yogurt and salmon sashimi which was just okay because the beets overcame the salmon; calamari and coquille saint jacques in peas and parsley cream was excellent; and Foie Gras with orange marmalade which was very good. All in all, the starters were the best part of the meal.
The meal came with an Italian Cabernet Sauvignon, which was quite new (2011) but fruity and light. quite a good choice, even if not the best wine.
Then came the main courses, which was good, just not as good as the starters. I took the Entrecôte with potato gratin and bone marrow. The steak was made medium as requested, but was a little on the fat side, but the bone marrow saved it's taste. The potato gratin was just a sample, but was nice. The other main course was a Rump steak with mushroom cocktail over mashed potatoes with bone marrow on the side. This was a bit smaller, and was a little too fibrous. Again, the bone marrow saved the day...
We finished with three deserts which were part of the meal, all of which were an excellent ending to the meal: Petitsfours with creme patissiere; Chocolate, nuts and nectarine cigar over lamb yogurt and white chocolate gnash; and Mango, nectarine and berries Pavlova. Espressos woke us up for the drive, which was necessary after all this eating...
All in all, it was a very good meal. The main courses were not as innovative as the first courses, but we enjoyed. The service was mediocre - I recommend on teaching the service how to pronounce everything and how to serve wine properly, but they did not disturb us or insisted on asking if everything is okay like they're used to in Israel, so it was good...
The restaurant itself is not in a touristic part of town, but has a nice atmosphere, and we had a very good meal. Recommended!

“really nice food like in brittany”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

we eat there a few week ago but after I came back from a holiday in Brittany and having dinner in the old city of DINAN I remember this restaurant. the food is exellent, it's well presented on the plate, the service is nice and smilling and it's really like the food serve in Brittany. the wine also is pleasant but the best part was the dessert..

“Outstanding food in an unusual area”
Reviewed July 28, 2012

The restaurant appears to have been opened recently, in an industrial area with few competitors. We arrived through a coupon from one of the daily sites for a complete meal, and with a certain wariness, on a Friday night. Our fears were misplaced, however, as the food was absolutely amazing- our meal included six appetizers, and they were all great. It's not really near anything interesting, and there are great restaurants all over Tel Aviv, but it definitely won us over.
