It's my first time to go to a French restaurant with my whole Malaysian family. They especially arranged Chinese speaker to introduce each dish on the menu. So sweet. We pretty enjoyed the wine n food that night. N I love that lamb shank so much even though I was surprised by the big pot. I would strongly recommend this... More

I have been in this restaurant several times because occasionally I am in Johor. This is always a good restaurant with good dishes and wine. Maybe little bit expensive compared to the others but more than acceptable price. I like this place and I come here every visit in Johor. I kindly suggest it.

Must try the wagyu beef. It's juicy and smooth. ☺ House wine is great. Nice hospitality. Cosy environment. Nice Christmas songs.

I doubt they are truly no.1 in Tripadvisor due to the deliciousness of the food, probably more for the excellent service and the ambience. Sitting comfortably welcomed in this restaurant you will forget for a while that you are dining in a shop that is in the city streets of Johor Bahru, Malaysia. The chocolate mousse and the baked potatoes... More

This is no doubt my favorite restaurant in the world. The food, ambiance and service are always top notch. My wife and I braved up to 2 hours of traffic each way every time we decided to indulge ourselves in this home-away-from-home!

Wonderful food and friendly service. Its food you can eat and you can get a goid explanation for your palate There is parking help as street can get busy. Street can be a bit seedy so get gps reference and stop in front of restaurant to get valet help.

We had a good dinner here this weekend. Service was good but staff lacked knowledge of the wine list. The filet of beef was excellent, the lamb and escargot were pretty good too. Will return the next time in JB, good value for money.

Nice restaurant with authentic French cuisine. Good atmosphere with nice and very well trained staff. In regards of cost it's more on the pricy side. Parking may be at time a problem.
