This is quiche I was served, burnt hard I couldn't cut it with a knife, I was told there's nothing wrong with it that's how it's served? I refused to pay, wouldn't recommend the quiche.

Very rare to find a place with such good meat quality, tender, juicy and very tasty. Great atmosphere and very nice waiters. Will come back with my loved ones!

Stopped by here for dinner late after watching the cathedral light show. It was 9pm and we wanted to share the magret de canard (duck) dish. The waiter was reluctant to let us share the dish (portions are huge, by the way), and had to...More

I don't want to give this place a bad review. But we ordered the chefs special salad. Ham and olives sounded great, unfortunately it arrived with two black olives and processed ham slices, that were in multiple slices and cubed. The salad itself was fine...More
