Food was really good... service too. The whole restaurant was nicely done up.. gives a very French feeling. It looks so insignifcant from the outside... many just drive or walk past... but one step in and everything feels different.. Affordable pricing too.

Th decor is quite nice. Reminds you of the tiny European places. The food was quite good, especially the soup. Experimented with their homemade tiramisu icecream, which I honestly didn't like, but rest was quite good.

Amazing food. Must try the mushroom soup. The pastry dish with mushroom fillings is my favorite. This is such a cosy and nice place. Not noisy enough for decent conversation between two people. Such a nice ambience. And the food is superb.

I went to the restaurant with some friends. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The food was delicious and the recommended wine (cheval noir) also. The French owner and his wife are very charming. Highly recommended
