Visited French Village on botanic for dinner and was bitterly disappointed. To start off the menu is quite small, but you can see past that if the food is nice. It wasn't.

Called in for a late lunch after visiting Queens University, the sandwiches were so good we went back for breakfast the next day instead of having hotel breakfast and it was superb.

I have had lunch, desserts and coffee here. Since it was very busy, the service was quite slow but I really enjoyed the cream puff. I had egg benedict, which was quite nice as well.

It wasnt available. I asked if I could nibble on a few olives but they hadnt any. So I ordered a... More

Had a lovely meal here with family on a Thursday evening. Food was lovely with good portions and the service was excellent. Added to that it was reasonably priced particularly as it is a BYOB.
