We came here after checking local eateries on Trip Advisor and we were frankly blown away. Possibly because I have lived in France and it had a typical French Bistrot menu (not surprising as it's run by a Frenchman). Our waiter (Axel) was friendly and...More

The food was decent. Portioons were "ok". The food didn't blow me away, especially the main courses of steak, osso buco, and chicken. Overall it was just "ok" but the cost of four people was over $150. The service was pretty good overall.More

Prince Arthur Street can be a crap shoot in terms of restaurants. Many offer sub-par food at ridiculous prices. Les Deux Gamins was perfect. The food was well-prepared and presented. We prefer BYOW/AVV restaurants, but this one had a good wine menu at reasonable prices....More
