this is a place you can find some decent food but not if you want to taste local food. It is too expensive for the proportions they serve and also the quality of food. The staff are nice and well trained but it is not a value-for-money option.

We have been eating here every time we have visited. Last 9 years nearly. And I must say the food and service has been consistently very good. Even their beverages. Ginger lime soda , hot or cold both are delicious. The mainly French food is simple and delicious. Their savory crepes is a must try , and their soups are... More

A good classic French restaurant with rich food and a good range of drinks. The service was excellent and the setting is peaceful and relaxed. My blue cheese pasta was very well done and others had very fresh looking trout.

this is a good French restaurant (amazing to find in Nepal) in a beautiful setting. I had the mustard pork chop and LOVED it. Others there with us equally loved their food, except that the steak au poivre didn't seem to have the same appeal as other dishes. Having heard that portions were small...I was pleased with the actual size... More

Our last meal in Kathmandu needed to be memorable, so our host friend thought. He had wanted to take us for our first meal in town the week before but schedules didn't work out. We had lunch and what a lunch it was. we all had the steak sandwich on the fresh begets. At least for me it was one... More

I love the atmosphere of the old building (not many buildings remain white in KTM!).. there is a decadency to the setting which just attracts you. While the seafood isn't that great, meat, crepes, lemon tart and mousse chocolat are just fantastic! The service needs to be commended too!

I had fish, which did not taste very good. This place is very highly rated on various sites, but my experience is that it is overrated. The setting is very pretty, and the shopping center it is located in is great.

From the cucumber juice to the lapin à la moutarde to the chocolate fondant, everything was delicious. And it was so sweet to speak French with the staff ! Well done Caroline. I warmly recommend the place.
