This french food is made for asian people. Suggar is added in all found, what is very different with France. For example, beef black peper look like a dessert. Not recommanded for people who really like french food.

Warm hospitality, great food, great wine. Loved it! We had seafood pasta, grilled salmon, de-bone chicken, and a cream soup to die for, followed by a small dessert.
