“With a menu left of center-- this bistro makes you want to come back for more!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 March 2012

We started with the Beligian fries and Basque Moules-- a bowl of mussels spiced with Spanish chorizo, white wine, chilli and red peppers! Then for the the Vol au Vent fruits du mer--seafood delight and the Duck--Magret du Canard! Finish off your meal with a glass of port and a German bitter and some desserts also left of center!! How common is bacon ice cream? Nuf said!

“What a Great Lunch!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 February 2012

Went here on a suggestion, and lunch was incredible! Had a mushroom crepe and frites which left me wanting to lick the plate from the sauce. Had a very nice side salad with it also. The setting was comfortable and the waiter was very attentive.
Easily walked from downtown, 15 minutes. Knew it was a hit when I realized that so many people there were obvious locals and regulars.

“Great food, nice place and people”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 February 2012

My wife and I went to this restaurant while in San Antonio after seeing it on Trip Advisor.
We were not disappointed. The mussels were the best we have ever had and the lump crap crepe was rich and delicious. Prices were reasonable and our waiter was friendly, informant and attentive.

“Yummy Bistro!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2012

The food here is really delicious... the roasted pear salad and the steaks are especially good! The atmosphere is cute/romantic and the service is very good. It's also in a cute part of San Antonio... lots of stuff to do nearby.

“Fresh & Flavorful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 February 2012

The black drum was fabulous, but when I go back I'm trying the fried lobster. A dining companion tried it, and the dish looked heavenly.
