Fodor's Review

Here you'll find everything you would expect from a petit bistrot: an intimate environment, comforting food, good music that's not too loud, and excellent French wines. Start by ordering the house specialty, hailing from Lyon, France: fish quenelles with your choice of various sauces. A popular main dish is the carne bourguignonne, beef cooked in red wine and butter with bacon and mushrooms. If there's room for dessert, try the clafouti, a French custard with cherries

that has a texture similar to mousse. There is no sign—go to the northeast corner of Plaza Juanacatlán and listen for people speaking French. Reservations recommended.
