Fave French eatery

One of my favourite French eateries. The onion soup and brocolli soup never fails to whet our appetite. My favourite entree would be the foie gras, which boasts a crispy outside and soft and fragrant on the inside. It is comparable or even better than many served in other reputable French restaurants that I have patronized. The mains like duck confit never disappoints, and the sea salt spaghetti is tasty with a generous serving of prawns. The desserts pale in comparison but with the tasty entrees and mains, it'll be enough to satisfy your tastebuds. :)

Love the food! There was only one chef, but all meals were served pretty promptly, and all tasted yummy. Must try: Duck, snails, and garlic prawn pasta! The soup was ok, but the creme brulee was very good! The chef welcomed us and bid everyone goodbye. She was friendly and humble, made us feel very homey. Will be back soon!

They serve western, French cuisine. With the on going promotion, we had 2 kinds of soup, which was ok. The entree foie gras was served just about five minutes after the soup. Foie gras was pan seared with an orangey sauce, very tasty! Only thing we find the portion a bit small and the salad portion a bit overwhelming. But it was still yummy! The main courses, Confit De Carnard, Garlic Prawns with Spaghetti and fillet of chicken came right after we finished the entree dish. I tell you, the duck is a must try! The fragrance of the duck, and the crisp of the skin, marvellous! The garlic prawn was delightful, and the chicken breast was cooked nicely, not dry. Dessert was Creme Brûlée, which was also nice. The whole dinning session took us only about 40 minutes plus waiting time. We ate, and we were gone. No frills, no fuss, good food!! Recommended!! My only problem about the place is finding a parking lot. Good luck finding one! :p

Tucked away in one of the old shop houses along Upper Thomson Rd, we found this precious gem that serve French/Western cuisine. The setting is simple, but like the chef said, the selling point is their food. And they did not disappoint! We ordered the set meal and topped up to substitute soft drinks for wine. The onion soup was in a clear soup form, but it was very appetitizing, much better than many places that trY to thicken their soup with flour. We had the Escargot as the entree. It was very different from other places. 6 escargots were served in a French croissant with a sauce that work well together. Their signature dish, Confit De Carnard, was almost as good as the ones we had in Australia! It was fork tender and you can actually eat it on its own without the sauce as it was very well seasoned. (Better than the ones we had at Black Sheep Cafe, Absinthe, or Saveur!!) The steak was nothing to shout about, But the prawn spaghetti was very nice! I don't know how the chef did it, and sorry, I know it's just prawn spaghetti, aglio olio style, but she made many spaghetti places seem amateur. Lastly, the creme brûlée was nice. It was not too sweet with a very nice texture, except the sugar was a bit too burnt. And the house pour was fine for me. But wine tasting is subjective. So, I hope u guys find this review useful and help u make a decision onwhere to eat tonight. :)
