French cuisine- tartare, calmars, porc effiloché ( pulled pork), mousse de chevre ( cheese), rillettes de lapin ( paté) really good. However, creme Brule with cinnamon does not work. The texture and is not like a creme brule. Great experiment but not successful. Nice little place, good wine.

Les villains always has interesting items on their menu. The food is always good, and it's fun to try different small plates. The tasting menu for a group is also an excellent experience if you have the opportunity. Excellent for lunch or dinner.

We are pretty foodie- but here where google map is off a bit (walking street) and our French is abysmal we felt a bit intimidated by the tiny place with its all in francais menu. I just smiled and asked the waiter to bring us 5 good things and a glass of wine. These guys are pushing gastronomic boundaries without being scary. Everything was approachable and identifiable but had a very high end twist to each dish. Beautiful presentation- order 5 at a time! This is a taster menu so portions are small and beautiful while still being filling. 5 of us ate 10 dishes ($60) and had wine and split desserts. We were all satisfied and our bill was more than fair really. I got the waiter to pick a red wine for me and it was fantastic! Wish I had asked what it was. Go. Don't be scared- their English is good and everything is totally exciting! We will definitely return...maybe later this week!!!! Can't even pick a fave they were all great: chorizo, shrimp, pork cheeks, smoked beef, cod lamb. mmmmm!

Very lovely place. Great view. Tapas type of place. The dishes were tasty and very original. The deserts were to die for!!! Cocktail was delicious. The only thing I would say negatively is the service went from good to terrible. Started with one great waiter to a very horrible one who never came to see us, we had to wait 20 minutes before we went to get him for our bills and another 15 minutes before we went to pay our bill ourselves. This was addressed to him and he was only defensive.
It's a must try place but I only hope no one end up with this second waiter

Here for a business trip and wanted something different and gourmet. Found it.
My husband and I loved everything that they served and the presentation.
