The one and only French fine dining cuisine in Johor Bahru for the last 25 years. Good authentic food that's not available elsewhere; cozy ambience, experience friendly waiters, chef close rapport with customers and diverse arrays of wines.

Went for the New Year's Dinner -- Limited menu and expensive. The pasta tasted liked canned tomatoes with sugar added. The French onion soup and service was really good though. Maybe their regular menu food is better?
