Delicious baked snails, must try. Looks like weird, but tasty i've never tried before. I like the Soupe de Tomates, Croutons et Crème Fraiche. Nice steak also.

This is a private-owned French restaurant that comes packaged with the bubbly French chef and his wife, friendly staff, cosy environment, good selection of wines and really good French food.

There were couples and companies of more than 3 dining at the tables, but I liked sitting and having my food at the bar. The chef, who is a native French from Nice, was at the bar chatting with some regulars and overall created a nice little ambience. We had some conversation as well and it was most certainly pleasant.

The food, needless to day, was quite amazing. I had their signature escargot, which was delightful to say the least. Their onion soup was fabulous and the main course, which was duck breast with special pepper sauce, was very good. The duck could have been more moist, but the sauce redeemed it. Very tasty.

I had their house wine, which came in a carafe (half a bottle size). It was a Merlot and was quite average. A better wine could better compliment the fabulous food, so I'll pick a nice bottle of Rhone from their menu instead next time.

I'm not sure if you can find a restaurant in JB with better ambience and food than Chez Papa. Aside from having your meals, do have a chat with Chef Dominique and Shereen. They are the nicest people you can meet. I'll most certainly be back.
