My wife and had lunch here today and it was quite disappointing as we were expecting authentic French and Mediterranean food. I had the Spanish paella and my wife had the ham and cheese crepe. The paella had thin cold cuts salami and tiny seafood (smelled fishy) and the chicken was a boiled and maybe grilled leg. The rice was... More

Original owners have sold this place, it is not the same. Spaghetti is comparable to Sbarro with less meat and prices went up a bit. Not going back.

We decided to try this place after living here for 12 years.Now we know why no one who lives here goes there.....it is terrible.Coq Au vin was chicken thighs in a canned sauce and the beef dish was inedible-had to send it back.No French bread and soggy salad.

Great authentic chocolate mousse,and excellent croque Monsieur . You may even have the opportunity to practice your French if you are lucky enough to meet the owners,who are from France. He greets and seats, she is the chef.

I come here often but the last couple of visits have been less than acceptable. This time hair in the soup and then being accused of it being ours. A croque Madame rushed un toasted with grade B ham. Slow and inconsiderate service. Just the facts. No exaggeration.

I never would have thought I would find authentic french food in Fort Myers Florida in the middle of an outlet mall. Everything we had was delicious. The people serving were lovely and helpful in recommending various dishes. I have eaten in France and the chef is the real deal. The whole family wiped their plates clean with the delicious... More

I was extremely disappointed with this restaurant. I was pretty hungry and decided to sit down and eat and thought it'd be pretty safe to go with the chicken sandwich. I don't write terrible reviews i love to write great ones so people know where to appreciate but I can't understand how this place stays in business. It didn't take... More
