Went here last night with my husband for his birthday. The service was great, we got seated, even without a reservation, and the food was good... but not great. The beef bourgignon was better than my chateubriand which was a lot tougher than I would have expected... not as tender as that type meat should be. Moules frites were good... More

Good french Braserie. Prices are quite high. The chateaubriand, the modules and the pate are quite good. Good selection of wines.

To be honest it is not one of the best French restaurants in Costa Rica. I ordered the beef bourguignon and it was good but not spectacular and definitely it;s not worth the price. You can have a better experience at Le Chandelier or at Grano de Oro

I was concerned that a light brunch would end up costing me more than I was comfortable with. They had great options at less than I would have expected!

This is a very nice place to have dinner, the restaurant is pretty although I think it needs an update because I notice that what is written on the  "glass wall" some of the letters and words have fell, So that obviously needs to be improved cuz if you're going to a nice place in this area like avenida escazu...

The location of the restaurant is excellent. Ave Escazu is one of our favorite go to places for dining. This French restaurant has a real nice ambience with the food to match. We started of with very tasty escargots and the muscles. Finger licking good if you will. Then the Corvina and the Entrecôte were very good as well. Sauces... More

Great international food, I had a great dinner experience in this restaurant, I had a Filet Mignon Grillé which was greatly cooked along with some great red wine. I was invited by some great Costa Rican friends into this amazing restaurant. Even though I did not pay I noticed the prices were very, very high.

I just had lunch today with my staff to get 2016 going and the food was excellent, Alberto our waiter gave us an excellent wine recommendation for a Malbec which was great. The food menu has been expanded although I still like the classics which compete with one's I sometimes have in Brussels.

This happened to me too, the first thing we need to learn is to build trust with the costumers, the French wine was $5 to $7 per cup while the Champagne was charged at $22 per cup. The main menu did not include that Champagne, when I asked for the menu there were a second paper brought to me with... More
