Excellent omelette with home made sausage and super eggs benedict. Cosy, fun French vibe. Quick and friendly service.

“Cozy French restaurant with great food and service, at very reasonable prices.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013 via mobile

One of our new (as of end of 2012) favorites. Great food and service, cozy atmosphere, and all at prices you'll pay at average upscale restaurants.

“Great neighborhood gem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

This is a wonderful French bistro run by a long-time restaurant owner in Palo Alto. It is very small and feels authentic. Max, the owner serves about a dozen typical French bistro dishes along with daily specials. Portions are large. I especially love the salads, coq au vin, fish dishes, mussels, and fresh vegetables. They are also open for brunch with fantastic eggs dishes and beautiful sandwiches. There is outside dining on California Ave which makes the experience even more Parisian.

“My family and I loved it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2012

The food was delicious and authentic. The experience was wonderful. The staff spoke French, the chef came out and made recommendations about wine, appetizers, meal and desert. We had a memorable experience.
