Loved this place for the French ambience but really loved this place for the steamed mussels...Outstanding. There were at least 6 different types of steamed mussels; my favorite was the mussels with chorizo for the spicy kick it provided. The service was also wonderful, friendly and attentive. And the wine choices were very good too. Definitely worth repeat visits and to me extremely reasonably priced for such a nice dinner.

“French in the desert”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2013

A bit of France in the midst of Borrego Springs. the mood is casual and laid back. The food was O.K. Definitely, not something I would go back for. The ambiance was pleasant and the prices high for the value of what was served. Despite the mediocre food, the place is very busy. Reservations are definitely required on the weekend. Maybe dinner would be better.

“Had time for two meals out in Borrego Springs”

A gem in the desert. An oasis of culinary delight. We had dined for hours... a fabulous dinner with gracious server. Mussels are a must! The next day we decided to have lunch there as well.

“Wonderful ambiance-soso food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

Loved the atmosphere and the service was very good. We ate here the night before New Years Eve, Unfortunately the food was not very good. It is somewhat expensive, so I probably wouldn't try it again.
