I read about this place before heading for Playa and was excited to try a new restaurant, especially a French restaurant, because they are few and far between in Playa.
We stopped by during a walk on Monday and were disappointed to see what looked like construction still going on. However we did return and found that completion of some flooring goes on each Monday (when the restaurant is closed).
The setting is very nice, just off fifth avenue and far enough away from the 'mad' section to be quite peaceful.
Food and service were excellent. Eggs Cocotte with truffle sauce was simple but delicious (I still want them to email me the recipe!). As someone else has already stated, the duck a l'orange was prepared just so, very tender with a sauce that did not overwhelm the flavor of the meat. Potatoes and vegetable were very well prepared and tasty.
prices are reasonable and the owner/chef and his charming wife were genuinely pleased to hear our positive comments. They obviously take pride in their business.
Definitely one for the list when we return to Playa.
