The menu offers a wide variety of mouth-watering starters. We had the baked fresh water prawns with sliced garlic, chilli and spaghetti tossed in its own “jus” accompanied by a grilled hokkaido scallop with apple-cider vinaigrette. We tried also the homemade mushroom soup which is...More

I cannot recall the first time I stepped through this tri-colour establishment, but the food at this establishment is testimony to their fervent dedication to appetising French crusine, shaped by the warm close knit family culture. The consistency of their food is astounding. I highly recommend...More

Staff knowledge of wines is poor. Wine list does not correspond with bottle and they insist it is right. House wine can be a young wine but if a patron buys a bottle?? 2017 Sauvignon Blanc is too young to put in a wine list...More

Food was really good... service too. The whole restaurant was nicely done up.. gives a very French feeling. It looks so insignifcant from the outside... many just drive or walk past... but one step in and everything feels different.. Affordable pricing too.

Th decor is quite nice. Reminds you of the tiny European places. The food was quite good, especially the soup. Experimented with their homemade tiramisu icecream, which I honestly didn't like, but rest was quite good.

Amazing food. Must try the mushroom soup. The pastry dish with mushroom fillings is my favorite. This is such a cosy and nice place. Not noisy enough for decent conversation between two people. Such a nice ambience. And the food is superb.
