This is a pleasant restaurant, located on an alley with lots of other restaurants, up the hill from Itaewon Street and a short walk from the Itaewon subway station. The service is prompt, as in most Seoul restaurants I've visited, and very friendly. My Korean-born waiter had spent many years in France and provided a good opportunity to speak French. The limited menu includes a choice of three entrees -- a fish du jour, a meat course, and tenderloin steak, with or without duck foie gros. The Saint-Ex set came with soup du jour or small green salad, an entree (steak, with or without foie gros de canard, involved a supplement), a small glass of wine, and creme brulee for dessert. The filet steak, topped with warm duck liver, was wonderfully tender if a bit underdone, with a tasty sauce au poive and a good serving of potatoes au gratin. The wine was excellent, as were the salad and creme brulee. Moreover, the bread, procured from Seoul's Guillaume bakery, tasted like a true French baguette. The bill, including tax, service, and supplement for steak and foie gros, came to 75,000 won -- a bit high for a bistro meal, but arguably worth it because of the quality of food and service. I'd be pleased to return.
