“Perfect french food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 January 2013

With all the fusion food that is available in San Cristobal this classic restaurant was a reminder why french dishes should take as much time to consume as they are to prepare. Absolute perfection! Pierre and his lovely chef wife are a joy along with the quaintness of the restaurant and gardens.

“Disappointing - resting on it's 16 year history....too bad !”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2011

This 16 year old restaurant initially charms you when you come in. It is nicely decorated with both French and Mexican artifacts and it has a nice patio where you also can sit if the weather is nice.

The menu looks inviting...a number of French standard classics you have eaten before and your mouth starts to look forward to enjoying them again. The wine selection is acceptable, but not great and the prices are a bit (but not too terribly) on the high side. We selected a nice Merlot and enjoyed it.

For here - it went down hill. The wait for our appertizer and then our entrees was forever!

The appertizer we ordered was their assorted plate of French pates---it was TERRIBLE! Dried out - thin slices that were basically tasteless....UGH! The waiter tried to saver the day by bringing out some French Dijon mustard - to no avail.

I ordered the duck in a fruit sauce and it was poor at best. My wife had a fish dish and she ate a couple bites and declared it not fit to eat. We decided to skip desert, despite the classic French deserts promised on the menu and pay our bill and go somewhere elce for a "snack" to make up for not eating our dinners at Pierre's.

This restaurant might have been great in the past - we do not know, but currently it needs a new chef and more wait staff.
