Big big portions

That is some good pry-of-the-bone grilled pork ribs with housemade barbecue sauce ($22.80), The French Stall! It's a massive portion for one (we shared between two) with robust savory notes. The lentils were a little overcooked, but a good base as its flavours didn't overpower the ribs. As part of a deal at the Stall, we also received a free giant baked Alaska ($11.80) with our meal.

An old school French restaurant that our parents most probably would have know of; it used to be called ‘The French Stall.’ After many years, we’ve finally made a revisit, and it was good.

"not worth it at all" for this type of restaurant, what you pay you can get better restaurant

I used to be visit there often 6 years ago. Due to some reason i just move back to SGP, thats why thought to visit my favourite restaurant so we booked a table before arrived. its change and improving of restaurant layout especially kitchen i guess (more chef).. and menu, logo colour and furniture are changed too. yes service are excellent.

"but kind huge dissapointed for this time visit, don't think its worth it to visit again.. !

my friend and me ordered:

-Entrecôte de Bœuf Épaisse (300gr) Grillée, Beurre Moutardé et Gratin Dauphinois ***$35.80  Grilled Beef Ribeye, Gratinated Potato with Mustard Scented Butter      -Faux Filet de Bœuf (200gr) Grillé, Sauce au Poivre Noir, Pomme Sautée *$25.80 
Grilled Beef Sirloin Steak with Black Pepper Sauce & Sautée Potato 


-Salade de Magret de Canard Fumé **$16.80   Smoked Duck Breast Salad 
- 4 glass of house wine.

its cost total $147 or *$150 ( cant remember excatly number)


my point is
1. if you are steak lover : 
    --- never never order sirlion steak ( don't seasoning/favour enough) 
    i'm not a good cook but i think i cook better than this. 

    ---- for rib eyes. yes its not bad at all. average (not worth it to pay this amount at this type of restaurant)

2.  Duck salad 'which you can't really see the vegetables" 
     it tastes excatly same duck you buy at food court,
     and you just slide it at plates then you decorated nicely. (no sources)  
     (taste not bad but totally waste your money)

3.   house wine just averaged.. will be great if they can change their wine glass type.

Conculusion:
Overall  i believe its easily to find good restaurant with good atmospher with average $150 bills. 
guess they have been lost all their regular customer..

Not worth your trip here, there are better French restaurants

Read from website reviews that people no need to spend a bomb to eat French food, but I find that the food is not as fantastic and price is not that cheap compared to other French restaurants I have been to.
The place is not air-conditioned and it is located right to a Main road.  You can imagine the heat, the noise and not forgetting, the exhaust from vehicles. Definitely not a good ambience to enjoy French food.
It is not near to train station, no decent parking lots available.
I would rather go back to Le Bistro Du Vin at Zion Road or Bistro Du Vin at Shaw Centre than coming here again.

Not a place I will ever visit

I first try this restaurant years back when I was still a student and they are just a stall inside the foodcourt beside allson hotel. Its good that business grew and they have a nice shop of their own. But it has now become a restaurant that I will not visit. Not for the lack of good food but for the simple lack of decent service. This round we visited at 7.30pm with a restaurant half full. 4 of us was sitted down without a reservation(yes we r groupon users). Shortly after we are told the restaurant is fully booked and we have to leave. The reason being they only accept a few groupon customers a day and for groupon users their r fully booked till 9.30 pm Sunday night. After which the groupon is expired( they closed for renovations till 18 march n we r unable to come till last nite). was told we r free to stay n dine if we dun use groupon. Would you stay and eat? I won't and probably never agai
