We had booked our reservation with Chez Papa after seeing that it was the #1 restaurant in all of Johor. We are here for our anniversary and wanted to celebrate in an intimate, and romantic, restaurant. We didn't want a huge impersonal restaurant interfering with the feeling and the atmosphere. Jill has lived in France and loves French food so this was the perfect choice!
We feel in love with Chez Papa the second we walked in. It is so quaint and the decor is wonderful. Dominique, the owner, has put a lot of time and effort into making the interior calm, fun and it feels as if you are walking into a classy French bistro.
We sat at a table that was nice and simple. We ordered a fairly priced rose from France and had that with the 5 cheese plate. Delicious and a great start to the evening.
For the entre we had steak with peppercorn sauce and I had chicken stuffed with mushrooms in a cream sauce. Both had sides of vegetables and potato mash.
Simply said: AMAZING. We could not believe how good it was. Usually, when I go to eat, I remember the first few bites and the last few bites. Not this time. Every single bite had more flavor and made us remember what it is like to eat food that is made with love by the chef.
We then had desert and a glass of brandy each. We were full but we were not going to pass these by as the night was special and we wanted to truly celebrate and enjoy every second of it.
Dominique, who we had watched bring food out during dinner, give advice to staff, and make sure everything was perfect, stopped by and asked us how we were doing. We thanked him and told him that this was the perfect dinner for our anniversary. The rest of the staff always smiled, was friendly and the service was excellent.
Honestly, we can not think of a restaurant we have enjoyed more at this point. We will go back again for another meal before we leave as we know we will have a hard time finding a restaurant this good soon.
