Fodor's Review

If you are craving classic French cuisine, you'll find it here, in generous portions, and with few contemporary flourishes. The charismatic French owner and his capable maître d' are both exceptionally knowledgeable about the cuisine and wine, adding to the authenticity of this neighborhood bistro. In a quiet corner is the retail wineshop, and you can choose a French vintage here and pay just a 400 peso corkage fee. Classic desserts like crème brûlée and tarte tatin are a small addition. French music plays, and live jazz is often scheduled. Mature and wealthy Piantini residents fill the room and the outdoor terrace on Edith Piaf and Beaujolais nouveau nights. You may not have a life-changing meal here, but if you have fond memories of France, it will be a very pleasant walk down that lane.
