Cosy, laid back yet charming, a very good place for a French dinner in Seoul. Dishes are good for sharing and believe you will make the most of the experience if you share several dishes.

fantastic food, fantastic view, and fantastic service. Absolutely loved it. I know that some say "gastronomie moleculaire" is passe nowadays but still refreshing to meet gagnier's dishes in Seoul. The view of the north mountain on a clear day is gorgeous.

I had a special lunch course which started from amuse bouche to dessert with a wine pairing I chosen. Each dish was a beautiful and nice, it was hard to explain. I could feel a chef's philosophy.

This was a fantastic experience. We had a 5 course dinner with wine pairing. Just amazing dishes. View from the 35th floor at night is exquisite. A shame that only 2 tables attended.

Generally a good spot, good views and good wine. But they billed my Visa in US dollars and the exchange rate they used was 5% worse than the going rate. That's super shady. I would avoid any place that thinks they can take advantage of...More

One of the reviewers mentioned that this restaurant adds 20% gratuity automatically. And people are all right with that in this city where tipping seems to be one step away from an insult?
