Service staff were pretty friendly and accommodating, but the place is a little cramped and tables were pretty small.
Now, for the food.
Being a family dinner, we ordered quite a number of items.
- Foie Gras
Excellent texture, the liver was fat enough, and gives you the melt-in-your-mouth sensation
The escargot was nice and tender, however, I felt they could have done better with the herb sauce
- Dried Sausage platter
Basically its salami, but much tougher and a little too salty to my liking. Wouldn't reccommend it.
- Cheese Fondue (served with bread)
Cheese was basically mozzarella cheese. Very thick, creamy and tasty.
- Sea bass
Fish was fresh and tender, with just the right amount of herbs
- Duck leg confit
Crispy on the outside, soft on the inside. Melt-in-the-mouth sensation can be experienced from this dish
- BBQ ribs
BBQ sauce was good, but the ribs somewhat tasted a little like fish. Not reccommended.
- Oxtail stew
Oxtail was very tender and soft. The meat can easily be removed from the bone. The stew itself is also very tasty.
Pretty juicy and tender. However, do request for 1 level up of done-ness when ordering (Eg, ask for medium if you like your steaks medium rare)
- Baked Alaska
This is indeed a masterpiece. Presentation is excellent, tasted excellent, with the meringue melting instantly when you eat it.
- Dark chocolate cake
A little too powdery to my liking. Not recommended.
Souffle is soft and nice with the right blend of chocolate. Very satisfying.
Pastry was a bit too hard. Otherwise, it tasted good.
This place overall is a pretty good place to satisfy any french food cravings. Some drawbacks would be: a little too noisy because it is open air and right next to the busy road. Parking is a hassle because the lots are limited. The only place to park at is Petain Rd, which is only a 1 minute walk away.
Price, well, it isn't what I would call cheap. However, the set menu does seem like good value, going for about slightly above $30, and if you wish to have better dishes, just top up between $4 to $10 depending on the type of dish (Stated on the menu)
Good for a visit once in a long long while.
I spent $48 per person.
Must tries: Foie Gras, Duck leg confit, Baked Alaska, Soufle, Oxtail Stew, Cheese fondue
- I also recommend this place for:
- After Work, Ala Carte, Alfresco/Outdoor Dining, Birthdays, Chillout, Dinner, Hidden Find
