I have been here about 5 times over the years and although the food is good, it is rather pricey which is probably why it is never full. I suggest he reduce the prices and also offer cakes and coffee/tea so that one can go for morning or afternoon tea. The ambience is good and I was there last Tuesday for the cous cous special which i enjoyed. The service is also good.

Good food, polished professional service, lovely table setting- yet somehow the ambiance was missing on a chilly Monday evening. The decor is very pleasant but probably more suitable for lunch, the terrace is nice but it was too cold to eat outside,although we were also cold inside- even the tasteful lighting and candle couldn't create any warmth. It was also not busy- only one other table inside and one outside. Had 2 good soups (onion and pumpkin) to start with, although unfortunately they didn't have the fish soup, delicious but very rich pork dish and confit duck leg to follow, both well executed and nicely presented. The tableware, glasses and china are all very elegant and are crying out for a more 'chaleureuse' atmosphere. Excellent creme brulee and peach & frangipani tart to follow and a decent bottle of Cote du Rhone. Well trained professional service which would almost be more at home in a more upmarket establishment.The old fashioned French music was definitely out of place and just made us laugh (and occasionally cringe). So all in all, we ate well but have mixed feelings about this place- it's location within a spa/hairdresser somehow make it a better lunch destination, although the terrace could be nice for dinner in warmer weather. Will we be back? Not sure, maybe I'll go for lunch if I treat myself to the spa, otherwise no. Shame.

Have had 3 business lunches here and it's pretty nice. Lovely decor, interesting menu, friendly staff. Basically takes you more time to leave as you enjoy the place. Menu is a bit pricey though.

Making a reservation was easy. I ordered completely on the waiter's recommendation and was more than satisfied. It was a lovely experience.

Great service, very good food. First place in Nairobi where I had foie gras & truffle. However very empty which is surprising.
