As the title says. perfect choice for quiet and private place, either for personal or professional context. Very good value for the money. Excellent selection of wine. Best French restaurant in town, and I can tell.

The food was excellent but the room was very very cold. The views were good. The Service was excellent. Would go back when air conditioning was not as good.

Food is tasty, nice presentation and everything excellent. However, food portion is quite small but it is the norm for French fine dining. The waiter will... More
