After reading the reviews I was curious about the place. Stayed in the walking street now for a few days: restaurant hasn't been open. This morning we saw why: Thai people were taking out all inventory. Looks like this restaurant will either be undergoing a...More

This place looked inviting but I was disappointed. Firstly it was difficult to enjoy the meal because so many people were smoking cigarettes. For a French restaurant I expected a wine list but there was only some unspecified wine by the glass. The salad dressing...More

Frequented by many French expatriate locals, enjoyable wines at reasonable prices. The owner George is a great character and serves some delicious fare! His steaks are all French cuts such as bavette or onglet - cooked to your liking and served with spinach, roast potatoes...More

Was recommended by my hotel. Friendly French host who clearly likes a drink...or two. Had the smoked salmon starter as the mussels weren't available (understandable as its low season) followed by the rump steak. Why do the French think thin cut steak is good!? Anyway...More

Good selection of authentic French food (and a decent selection of very drinkable wine which is unusual for Thailand) provided by George and his staff, as good as I have had in France. Nice feel to the restaurant as it is set up very much...More

We recently dined at this little bistro in the very quint Mae Nam. Run by a Parisienne, it is indeed a touch a Paris in Ko Samui, and well worth a visit. The prices are reasonable, the service and the food very good.
