Etoile is a gem in the middle of the city. The bistro serves quality food at really surprising prices for a hotel (the hotel too is a major gem I have recently discovered). The tasty chicken pot pie is a sure bet for a light meal, while the steak and fries truly hits the spot. Desserts? Try the strawberry shortcake! Service is very friendly and casual. Being at road level, it is easily accessible. A tall ceiling gives the place a feel of light and airiness. Perhaps they can add some Asian items to the menu.

The concept of this restaurant is unique. There is an on-site bakery, french patisserie and deli, so you can take away your quality food at extremely reasonable prices for a 5* hotel. The meals, cooked by warm, and friendly chef Andrea, are delicious and well presented, loved the steak and onion bagel and truffle fries. There is a great happy hour in the evening. The staff and service are second to none, both Siva and Ashley welcome you with warm smiles and make you feel like a VIP. Fabulous atmosphere, stylish design, featuring a modern KL landscape. Etoile is certainly a new shinning star, Highly recommended!

This is highly recommended for different varieties of delicious pastries and the ambient here is beautiful. We had one whole focaccia, pecan tart, and energy bar. One whole focaccia is only 12, muffin is 3, large cookies 8, coffee 8, reasonable price. 😋😋

Visited Etoile for lunch and I quite liked it. The bistro looks excellent and floor staff were very attentive. The downside is the pot pie and coffee I ordered were a tad bit slow to be served, especially during lunch time. One of the staff had to reconfirm my coffee order which means the order did not get through the first round. However, I must say the experience was quite pleasant.

I’m a regular customers and always love having breakfast and a quick takeaway from this cafe because of its quality and great service. The ambience for both interior and exterior during day time is lovely despite being so close to the busy roadside. I must say I missed their old ways of selling the sandwiches where they have a choice of bread selection for us to choose from instead of the ones they’ve prepared for us. The focaccia was fresh and scrumptious, the best among every other pastries shop out there. Love their fruit juices more than their coffees.

Dear clare34jl2, Thank you for taking the time to rate and review us. We really appreciate your patronage and kind words. Indeed we have fresh pastries that we highly recommend all to try. Unfortunately we had to start preparing our sandwiches with breads and fillings beforehand instead of letting guests choose as this reduces the waiting time significantly. It is our priority to make sure our guests are attended to as soon as possible. We will share your feedback with the team to see how we might be able to improve on this. We look forward to your next visit. Warmest regards, Tiffany Chung Public Relations Manager

Cafe serving wide range of ala carte dishes which include main dishes and sandwiches, coffees and cake, this is the outlet to enjoy perfect coffees, delicious cakes and pastries in the hotel. A great venue to relax, and enjoy a meal or coffee here. We had coffee lattes and cakes to take to our room, the coffee latte was perfect and the cakes was delicious too. The outlet is located on the lower ground of the hotel, lots of seating sections with outdoor views.

Had dinner at Etoile and the food presentation and taste were on point and tasty, especially the oven roasted duck leg and pea soup. However when I opted to take out the mushroom soup, beef pie and Latino Healthy Wrap for dinner on another day, it was a mess. The container cover for the soup collapsed and caused a spill in the paper bag. The wrap was soggy and tasted bland compared to dine in. Hope the food quality could be consistent for both dine in and take out. Also the foccacia bread with olives, tomatoes and garlic was overly salty not from the toppings but the bread itself. The baker should look into the sodium content of this bread.

Dear LeiraV, Thank you for taking the time to rate and review us. We have been open for for almost a month and are in the midst of revising our menu selections for improvement. We are so glad that you enjoyed our dining options so far and that you visited us again. We sincerely apologize for the spillage and hope that our staff were able to assist you with this inconvenience. We will make sure that it does not happen again. Rest assured, our recipe and preparations for our Latino Healthy Wrap are the same for dine-in and takeaway, but we will look into this as we value your feedback. We have also taken note of your comment about the foccacia and will make the necessary changes to the taste. Thank you again for sharing your feedback so that we may improve. We wish you a great rest of the week. Warmest regards, Tiffany Chung Public Relations Manager

The staff at Etoile staged an imaginative Halloween theme yesterday. We loved the monster beef and chicken sliders, and the sausage mummies, tasted great and looked frighteningly fantastic. The black olive spiders were a creepy addition. We enjoyed the Witches Brew, of champagne and aperol spritz, which included black hair ( local herb) and eye ball ( lychee and olive). The Bloody Beer was refreshing too. The fun and friendly staff really think outside the box, quality food served with genuine enthusiasm and 5 star service. Loved the decor and the handcrafted, tasty biscuits. The dramatic natural thunderstorm augmented the amazing atmosphere. Can’t wait to see what the next magical theme will bring! Thanks again to all of the wonderful staff at Etoile!

Went with my wife for the first time a few weeks back on a Saturday morning. The environment was great and cozy. Coffee was great. I had Nasi Biryani which was great too but ate too fast didnt take photo of it. They have a variety of bread and cakes at reasonable price for a 5 star hotel. I heard the Nasi Lemak is delicious too! Will come again.

Was there this morning at 11am when the place was not even full or crowded yet. Nobody greeted me, neither were there anyone to bring me to a table. Having found myself a place to sit and was expecting some service, again was left alone making me wonder if this is a self service restaurant - being my first time there. So got up to get myself a menu to look through while waiting for my friends to arrive, again nobody seems to be interested enough to serve me when I wanted to order a coffee. In fact the waitress that I’ve stopped looks irritated that I’ve called for her service. Coming back again? Will think twice though the food was ok but on the high side nevertheless.

Their food is so yummy !! Manager is friendly and welcoming. We ordered a chicken Cobb and pan seared sea bass for sharing, the portion of the salad - chicken Cobb is generous , lettuce, avocado, boiled eggs , cucumbers , corns ,cherry tomatoes , olives and etc: We don’t eat beef so they replaced the beef bacon to turkey bits for us ! Pan seared sea bass is fresh and nicely plated. Their pastry look delicious too! We will definitely come back again for their pastry next time. Highly recommended for brunch or lunch hangout with friends or family.

I love this place for several reasons. You get amazing food for a reasonable price. They also have a good collection of alcohol at the bar. You can get very cheap beers at happy hour from 5 pm to 9 pm. The interior is superb, they have the best lights in the city. Personnel are very friendly and great at what they are doing. Props to Siva and Ashley for recommending the best drinks and food from the menu.

Very comfortable place with good service. We'd ordered bagels with smoked salmon (not on the menu) but they brought bagels with just cream cheese. The manager stepped in and everything got fixed. I think it's always a good indication when things go slightly wrong but they fix things properly. Very good service especially from the manager Ms Putri. They have good coffee and a nice selection of baked goods by the way.

We had really high hopes for Etoile given the high ratings. Unfortunately it was highly disappointing. The servers were not very friendly and the food is priced high. Our meals were hardly warm when they came out. One dish was super salty and had meat in it even though this wasn’t clarified on the menu. I also asked for the triple berry smoothie without sugar and even after the server confirming this, it was the sweetest thing I have ever tasted and was undrinkable. Make sure to check on everything included in each dish with the server. The worst part was that my partner and I both got sick from the food. Really disappointing.
