“Great food, charming place”
Reviewed August 22, 2014

What a pleasant surprise. Been coming to Truro for years and somehow missed this gem. Greeted by a young and competent French host with a twinkle in his eye. Our table wasn't ready but he made every attempt to keep us updated on the progress of the party who had to leave before we could be seated. Had the absolute best heirloom tomato salad with mozzarella sitting on a bed of "eggplant caviar" redolent with olive oil. We sopped up every bit with our crusty bagette. Oyster are fresh and served with a classic cocktail sauce as well as mignonette. Main courses were clams in a heady curry broth with jasmine rice. Again a great use for that bagette. Olive oil poached cod was sublime as was the locally caught swordfish with cherry tomatoes and mashed potatoes. It was such a great dinner, we cancelled our reservation at a local favorite and went back again two night later. Again we had a wonderful meal. Loved our waiter. The owner came out and bid us adieu upon departure. If you are on the outer Cape, you must dine here.

“Great Pastries!”
Reviewed August 22, 2014

Granddad opened his wallet for the grand kids and they followed suit. They ordered croissants, pastries, eclairs, cheesy bread, Napoleons, etc. Everything was fresh and delicious. The sandwiches made with the cheesy bread were divine on the beach later in the day. Great place to visit on Cape Cod although you will think you are in Paris.

“Very Parisian”
Reviewed August 19, 2014

An overall pleasant experience. Went to get coffee and pastries for my sleeping family during vacation. Waited in line for 40 minutes. Not sure I would wait like that again but needed to see what all the fuss was about. I nice young man came around giving away free samples while we waited which was very nice. My frustration piqued when we entered the building and I saw that they were understaffed and the staff was not moving particularly fast. They were very pleasant though. They decor was nice, the food was very European, and the staff was very nice. It definitely had a flair that was unique and inviting and on my way out I walked through the restaurant area and they had quite a staff prepping for the lunchtime rush. It's on my list to go back with just my wife for lunch or even dinner. Has potential.

“Disappointed...”
Reviewed August 17, 2014

Had a great dinner here with friends last summer. What a turn-around this year.
Arrived on time for our reservation, no table available. Ok, that happens with a popular place.
45 minutes later we are finally seated.
Just gets worse.
Poor service, entrees are average to mediocre.
A very disappointing dinner experience. Especially when the prices are well above average.
Not sure I can recommend or if we will return, there are several new places in the area that warrant a try.
Unfortunate.

“PUT IT ON YOUR BUCKET LIST”
Reviewed August 15, 2014

If you love a good croissant and crave a quick jaunt to Paris, get there early and wait in line for a pastry! We haven't had dinner there yet but we will be back to try it!
