The food was great! I ordered the lamb cutlets medium rare, the meat was tender and on point. The carrot that came as the side for the lamb, i have never tasted a carrot cooked so well as side! Even my friends agree, and they too enjoy their dinner, one of them had sirloin steak and it was crispy outside, tender inside. Price is worth for quality of food, the chef is friendly and humble, she came out to help the waiters when she can while interacting with customers for feedback. Would definitely come again!

I had a wonderful experience at chez Papa. The food was excellent and the dishes totally original but traditional French. I had scallops and shrimps gratin for appetizer and mix seafood for the main dish and was advised a perfect white wine to go with the food. The service was excellent. I almost forgot , I also had a pastis for aperitif ! It really felt like I was in France.

Joanne and her colleagues made us really feel at home and welcomed; she was very patient in explaining to us the available courses and specials. Main courses were the highlight of the meal, apart from the desserts kindly on the house! On a side note, appetisers and entrées missed the mark; the Mushroom and the French Onion soups were salty, Caesar Salad was not well done, escargots were slightly tough and salty too. Overall, still a great experience!

We had in mind and expected a better food experience when we've decided to visit them. The starters were nice and very tasty; however, the past and the steak were not that great as main courses. The steak looked fried and had a lot of fat that was not well cooked. Pasta was a bit overcooked. Portions were nice and generous. Wine was good as well.
