The place has an old style restaurant room but the food is really good. Service is great. Ask for the dessert "charlotte de mangues". The best I have ever ate.

Dropped in for an evening meal - and, based on the very positive experience there, dropped in again the following morning for breakfast. French themed but a variety of cuisines available. Ambience, food, and service all excellent - and at a reasonable price.
