A small but intimate restaurant in Los Cristianos. The menu was limited and very French. Possibly too French with not a lot of variety but what we had was good and the service was excellent and the owner was very attentive. Perfect for a special occasion

Friends back home convinced us to make Alain a visit for dinner - a French bistro south in Los Christianos. We preordered a table, and we were received in the very best way. The meal was complete, as starter a light pâté supplied with fois gras, the beef was perfect (for each of us, with differing preferences), and the chocolate... More

This is a little back-street gem, which seemed to be open mainly in the evenings. It is run by a very welcoming couple from the Paris region and is delightfully French in ambience and cuisine. As soon as we arrived we were offered a glass of sparkling wine. After the gratis amuse bouche we went for starters of pheasant and... More

We visited three time while in Los Cristianos, including on our last night as yet another treat! Chef Mickael Bernot produces excellent French-influenced dishes, while Jacques and Marie look after the customers. It was usual when we visited to be greeted with a glass of fizz to drink while looking over the menu and specials board. There is always plenty... More

The restaurant was packed. They were very busy. Still they welcomed us with a smile and found us a table. Alain!? warned us that it might take some time to attend to us and offered us a glass of cava. Still the service was swift and in minutes Alain also presented a free starter. We just ate a main course,... More

Went there with my wife for the best metal - by far on this vacation. Food, wine and service were excellent and of a standard well above other restaurants in the area. If you are out for real gourmet food while in Los Christianos you have to try this place out. Was well worth the money!

Went there with my mom and grandma. The starters, the main course and the desserts were all amazing. The service was almost better than the food.

Wonderful French dining with wonderful personal service from the owners. Food is excellent with great taste. The menu is short, which in my opinion is the sign of a good restaurant, but there is a today's special board that usually lists catch of the day. This restaurant is so good we visited twice and it was a brilliant evening on... More
