French cuisine has always been one of my favorites, but when you add a delicate twist of Puertorrican ingredients like breadfruit "pana" croutons in a soup is a Home run. Have visited the restaurant few times before writing this review, consistency is one of my metrics and Chef Chaymol has been superb on this. Kudos to this great cozy french... More

Niche is a favorite for date nights. The ambiance is very romantic and relaxed and the menu is unique and Chef David takes the time to explain his dishes. Really, we don't even mind letting him choose anything on the menu or on special because everything we have had here has been amazing. We will keep going back as long... More

We went to Niche Bistro for an anniversary dinner and we definitely fell in love with the place. I can't believe we hadn't heard of it before (but we will definitely be coming back!). The place is very cozy, providing a very personal and intimate setting. The menu is amazing, we had a hard time deciding what to choose! The... More

We loved this restaurant, we had dinner for two in October and a great time, the food was appropriately priced and the dishes really good, its very dark though inside the restaurant, I was surprised because you almost couldn't appreciate the dishes because there was barely any light, but still so good. We took an Uber from our hotel in... More

This is a small intimate french restaurant with excellent food, wine and drinks. David the proprietor greats you at the door, presents the menu, assists with the wine selections and is the chef. He really does a wonderful job. We will be going back.

This hidden little culinary gem was worth the search to find. I had a pleasant dining experience with food of the most exquisite flavours. Absolutely wonderful from preparation to presentation & you can't go wrong with the Chef's tasting menu if you find it hard to choose. Niche was exceptional along with Chef David Chaymol and his staff! Highly recommended.... More
