We found the restaurant by the recommendations it had got from TripAdvisor and Google. Was a very nice place in contrast to the busy life in Nha Trang. Was here together with my wife where we got the lamb and crocodile. The taste of the food was excellent, but we was a bit unlucky to get a piece of lamb... More

We spent an evening here eating cheese (five different types with accompanying still warm baguette), drinking wine and playing scrabble (which we brought ourselves). The food was delicious and the restaurant lived up to its name, a cosy refuge from the occasional craziness of Nha Trang. Would recommend.

My wife and I had dinner here. The restaurant was very cosy. The staff was really friendly including the owner, Anthony, a recent transplant from Paris. We had the cheese plate to start, which was delicious --I didn't realize Brie cheese could have so much flavour. The bread it came with was freshly baked right out of the oven. We... More

The restaurant is fairly small and has one of the most inefficient layouts I have seen in a long time. We tried three appetizers: the french onion soup was excellent, the potato salad just ok. The goat cheese salad was disappointing: almost no cheese on a few leaves without dressing. The four different main courses were more or less all... More

We stopped in here for a coffee on the day we were leaving Nha Trang. Wish we had found it earlier in our stay!! Antony (the owner) is such a nice friendly person. Unfortunately, we did not get a chance to sample his food, but if we return, we most certainly will. It's like a log cabin inside and very... More

Very authentic French food, including some incredible cheeses. I ordered crocodile in a cream and tarragon sauce, which was very good. The crepes and the duck (which my wife had) were good but not fantastic. The wine was quite nice. And the owner was very friendly and helpful, so we ended up having an unusual but wonderful Thanksgiving dinner on... More

The staff and owner here try very hard, that much is obvious from the outset. The ambience is quite good though the large tables and trestles you sit on resemble pews at church. I'm not sure if I like it or not but that's how the business is presented. It seems clean. We ordered the duck and a simple side... More

The chicken cordon bleu was fantastic with a large portion and the owner was really friendly, making recommendations and asking if I liked the food. Slightly pricey but definitely worth it in this nice and cosy restaurant.
