My friends ordered medium and medium rare ribeye steaks, which turned out more uncooked than expected. We feedback on the rareness to the waitress but was met by silence from her so my friend said this is just to feedback to the chef. We were not expecting a refund or anything. On the plus side, onion soup was delicious. Salmon... More

This another one of my many visit to this place. I started dining here for the past 7 years. I have to say that the quality never fails me. Just go over and ask for the chef special menu. Bon appetite.

The photos on the wall haven't changed in decades - but that's just fine! Was good to see Shereen again though we missed Dominique. If you want real French food, you really don't have to go very far in JB. This place does it better than everyone else in this town and that's been true for almost 2 decades. Congrats... More

I was a bit early waiting for my customer. Stroke up nice conversations with some of the other customers at the bar. My customer arrived and we we spent a... More

I have been in this restaurant several times because occasionally I am in Johor. This is always a good restaurant with good dishes and wine. Maybe little bit expensive compared to the others but more than acceptable price. I like this place and I come here every visit in Johor. I kindly suggest it.
