Personal Review


I have very little experience in French Cuisine, so I made a point to drag my hubby, who isn’t all that into French food to this restaurant. One thing about going to restaurants where you know very little about what to expect is that you are open to anything. Although a gentle push in the right direction would help.

My knowledge of French food, besides Escargot which we bypassed, was that the French love butter, as do I, and are into creams, and have great duck dishes. Besides, the wine!

We started out with a few different salads and moved on to the main dishes. The waiter warned us that the dishes were small, and small they were. However, he forgot to tell us how extremely heavy the were as well. We ordered a duck dish and a tuna dish. Both of which my husband devoured happily, I on the other hand wasn’t all that thrilled. But that is pure matter of  opinion, since I’m not into overly heavy food.
