The staff at El Chalet Frances are very friendly and create a pleasant environment in their very tiny space. The food, however, is just ordinary. Unless you are really hungry for a salad topped with french fries, San Cristobal has way too many better choices...More

Visited with family. Very small, very quaint, very courteous and very excellent food like dining at your French friend's house. Boeuf bourguignon was excellent so was the service. Good selection of French wines. Corn soup was very good and the chipotle jam was very tasty....More
