VERY NICE FOOD!!!

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. :)

My family has been a huge fan of the Confit of Duck of the restaurant. Note: only the duck. But the recent visit changed our minds. We were so impressed by the new chef that I took the trouble to create this account to write a review.
We all wanted the duck, but the cashier convinced us to try something different. We ordered 2 promotion sets with entree of foie gras and salmon, 2 ducks, 1 garlic crystal prawn with spaghettI, and 1 salmon steak. As they have a open kitchen, I saw that it was a different person doing the cooking. But we were immediately impressed by the entrées. I remembered that the salmon was very very dry, and foie gras sauce too citric. But all's well this round. The Ducks were good as usual, even more tender as my wife said; the garlic prawns were delicious with the White wine sauce; salmon steak beautifully cooked, very nice texture.
Both sets were completed with 4 soups, 4 drinks and 2 desserts. 
We walked out of the restaurant very satisfied.
A lot of times, standards drop at eating places because of change of cook. Well, not this place. This place will become one of our frequent dining place. U have new fans now, chef Alex!

I'm not a food blogger, but would like to complement the restaurant for the good food, right attitude, and good service.
First, the food. We ordered the $53 set meal, which was value for money. We had mushroom and broccoli soup. Broccoli soup was beautiful, but mushroom soup was a bit too thick for my liking. The entree foie gras was amazing, it simply melts in your mouth!
Both main courses were good; the chicken chop was done to perfection, the flesh was very tender, and the chef did the skin wonderfully crispy, though I cannot really taste the wine in the sauce, but I loved it! My husband had the salmon steak, which was very fresh and well cooked, not dry like many places.
the dessert was nothing to shout about, just a tiny slice of chocolate cake. But we were happy with the food.
I like how the chef runs the place. I had been to many places where the staffs all look so tired and unsatisfied. But this place, everyone seemed happy and work like a big family. It reminds me of how my dad ran his restaurant before. After checking with the customers, the chef went around checking on the workers, bringing them drinks and stuffs, which was exactly what my father did. "Keep the workers happy", said my dad, "when the workers are happy, they will make the customers happy".
I sincerely hope this place will last, as many F & B places come and go. I like the atmosphere, the food, the service. Will definitely come often!
