We had our Christmas party at this restaurant. What an amazing place. The appetizers were delicious and so beautifully plated. Each dish was not only scrumptious but was a perfect portion. The service was absolutely outstanding. The atmosphere was very inviting. This restaurant is a true gem.

The crepes are real galettes - just like in Brittany - with a range of different fillings. The staff are charming French women - and very efficient - so the whole meal was a delight. Even the coffee was excellent. apparently they are only open for dinner on FridaySaturday,

First visit to this restaurant and food was excellent. Service was very attentive and friendly with constant top ups of coffee. Very enjoyable brunch. Small place and obviously very popular by how busy it was on a Monday morning.

Started with the Charcuterie share plate, ample if not generous portion of fresh sliced meats and cheeses with a delicious dipping sauce. Main courses of steelhead trout... More

Visited this lovely restaurant with friends in September. What a little gem. Immediately felt at home with the relaxed atmosphere and convivial host. The food was of the best quality and tasted sublime. A visit to this restaurant should not be missed, thank you for this taste of France. Bon appetite!!

An intimate European café like atmosphere that serves a high level of cuisine that is sure to exceed your expectations. Lunch and brunch have been wonderful experiences. I have not been there for dinner, but I assume you would not be disappointed. The Truffle Linguini was the best I have ever had.

It can be described as a restaurant, coffee shop, caterer, boutique and evenart gallery, but The Truffle House & Café is truly a warm place to eat European cuisine at a very reasonable price. Philippe & Fabienne Chaber have created a cozyand comfortable atmosphere and offer a delicious combination of French, Italian and West Coast specialties that your taste buds will love.Fabienne was taught the art of gastronomy in France by Michelin Star chefs Michel Mico and Jean Sulpice. With Philippe, they managed one of the biggest gastronomy and entertainment resorts of the French Riviera (Cap d'Antibes), La Maison des Pêcheurs.In the kitchen, the "West Coast touch" is provided by Dundarave's very own James Hodgins, former Beach House restaurant executive chef. Part of their mission is to "democratize" the truffle – to allow people to add truffle, truffle butter, truffle oil, or truffle sauce to their meals at reasonable prices.
