Our experience was truly delightful warranting me to post in this review. +s 1. Simple, casual and relaxed setting. Not the uppity stuffy place so smart casual dining works well here. 2. Staff is incredibly attentive, polite and speedy in delivering good service. 3. Experience...started well with the Tropical Punch and Original Mojitos which were presented well and icy delicious. 4. I was completely blown away by the onion soup(non halal as pork bacon is generously included) and the accompanying pastry made a superb combination. 5. After the soup, along with my “premium” 3 course set at a very reasonable RM105++ came their signature beef cheek which was very melting tender and delicious, while my wife’s fish meal was a generous serving(she thought serving was too large for a lady) with their signature potatoes(also a must-try) and a tomoto based veg dish which we couldn’t name. 6. Capping the meal was the creme brulee which came as part of my set and we “accidentally” placed another order when the waiter asked if we wanted dessert. So 2 creme brûlée was served which we were hesitant because we were quite full with the generous dinner portions, but we wiped out the desserts because.... well you have to try it to understand, dont not order creme brûlée here. -s 1. Parking is a challenge here so dont expect to park near or come on time thinking that you can just park and waltz into the restaurant. I had a scooter so we were lucky to just park right across the road. 2. Again this is not a fine dining restaurant requiring you to dress to kill, casual setting and very authentic small town french restaurant feel. If this is what you had on mind then this is the place. We will return.More

Simple laid-back, rustic French restaurant in Bangsar. We had the weekend lunch set menu, the food was good, excellent value for money. The service was good and the staff had a good attitude. Do not expect a fine dining restaurant. It is not that. If...you want a relaxed, rustic atmosphere with good French food this is a good choice. Maybe the à la carte menu is a bit more complex. The location is a bit challenging. You can’t see the restaurant from your car if you are driving. It is situated in a traditional KL shop-lot area.More

One of the better French bistro in KL. The food is unpretentious and home cooked. The service is led by the very friendly and welcoming owners themselves. The duck breast and the île flottante were great. The boeuf bourguignon and the apple pie, we felt...could be improved. Good choice of affordable wines.More

Great food as always. I love how the chef takes the time to talk one through the menu and discuss options with guests with dietary requirements.

If you're looking for a cosy quiet place to sink your teeth into some French cuisine, we would highly recommend this restaurant. The appetisers and desserts were superb. We would join the others to rave how good the onion soup was, the richness of the...fish soup (though some may find it too fishy, different palate) and the sinfully delicious chocolate ganache and fluffy lemon meringue. We were more impressed with these than our mains. Not to say the mains were bad, as we felt that the meat and seafood were under seasoned but it could be the accompanying sauces were the flavouring component. The side dishes however were very well seasoned. Perhaps to balance the meal. Overall an encouraging visit.More

Interior a bit spartan and exterior view mainly concrete. The Chef and partner (?) were excellent but the other staff seemed clueless. You have to go outside and stand on the pavement to smoke. Funnily enough the menu uses French but the waiters and the...bill all come in English.More

This place perhaps serves the most authentic French food at most affordable prices. Environment was nothing to shout about but the food and wine were the stars of this restaurant.

Outstanding!! This is the best French restaurant I’ve ever been in KL! The tastes were so exceptionally delicious and were absolutely satisfying eating each mouthful of each dish - bread n butter, roasted potatoes and tomatoes, fish, creme brûlée - I’ve never tasted anything like...this in KL and I highly recommend this restaurant - you’d certainly be satisfied.More
