Papillon Review

Despite being inspired by Henri Charrière's escape from Devil's Island, the food here couldn't be more removed from bread and water. The owners use the famous autobiography and film as a metaphor for a culinary journey to freedom—they transform classic French cuisine with Caribbean flair. There are whimsical prison touches throughout the restaurant and especially in the washrooms. The menu includes classics like beef bourguignonne but isn't afraid to offer more adventurous dishes such as a standout crispy duck breast served with passion fruit and chocolate. Whatever you order, you'll find the presentation is always impeccable.
