I love the crepes. Savory or sweet, both are good. The savory food are fine. But deserts is a must! The place gets full every night time on weekends. I think reserving a table would help out.

I discovered a notable French Bistro which maintains the high standards of all your favorite dishes of French cuisine in a relaxed Bistro ambience

I highly recommend the salade chèvre chaud, onglet steak which is most economical at just 790, and clearly the Chef's passion are all the fish dishes.
It's amazing that they are actually a "bakery" with a formidable repertoire of French pastries and desserts and also an extensive offering of crepes.

There are other bistros in Cebu pretending to be authentic but this is the real one. My French is in need of practice after living in Paris for a couple if years many decades ago. I get to practice listening as most of the other patrons are French. Clearly they must feel at home here

All in all - a gem. I live just up the hill and had passed it many times before entering. It has a very ordinary exterior and a plain decor. The magic is in the kitchen

Gosh, this is my first review and I have written so much. You must try it for yourself!

The desserts are great! The Trianon is a must try! The price is also reasonable. The location is a bit hidden but Streetscape is nearby.

Would have have not discovered this lovely cafe without my lovely friend Nikky who I have not seen in years!
Great coffee and Choco drinks. My ceasar salad was ok as there was too little greens and too much of bacon. Was very passable though!
Wimmo n Nikky both chose Lorraine quiche and both said it could be a bit warmer!
The Choco cake pistache was really pure Choco sensation... Too heavy for one so We shared it. We did not even finished it ... He he he!
Highly recommended to those who can afford. Not cheap.

I lived in Cebu for 2 years and this was in my top 3 places to eat. Everything on the menu is great but the cakes & pastries are without doubt the best in Cebu.

The service is excellent, friendly staff, regular top ups of service water, efficient and quick with orders and short waiting times.

The place isn't cheap by Filipino I standards but when compared to other places around it's way better food and for me offers better value.

Highly recommended
