The restaurant is tiny and only have 3 tables. But what it lacks in appearance it certainly makes up in Food, Value and Service, and that is hard to come by these days. The operation is managed by a nice couple with Vanessa on the floor and her french husband in the kitchen. The hostess is genuinely pleasant that she made me felt good even the table was not ready when i arrived. The food is as authentic as you can find in any bistro in France. Best of all, the price really put a smile on your face. Where else in this inflationary city can you still get a decent french dinner prepared with heart for $300?
For start we order a SMALL portion of Steak Tartare ($79)and the portion is enough for ladies to share.The beef is pinkish and fresh, hand chopped into tiny pieces and well seasoned with balanced flavors of saltiness and citrus.
For the main I opted for the Seabass with glazed vegetables and ratatouille ($188). The fillet was generous and tender and the skin was still crispy. The ratatouille is not overly cooked in tomato paste so the natural sweetness is still present. The crunchy texture and the tender meat makes a delightful and healthy dish.
For dessert I choosed the Bread pudding with salted butter caramel and ice cream ($68). Unless elsewhere, the chef uses brioche that is toasted. The crispy skin and the soft centre mixed with strawberry abd ice cream simply make your heart warm.
The local restaurant scene is fierce with competition. But i am sure that this nice couple can win your hearts with their rare passion about food and service! Good luck on getting a seat there.
