I have very little experience in French Cuisine, so dragged my husband for a taste test. He has even less experience, if that’s possible. The extent of my knowledge of French food is French Onion Soup, duck, Escargot, lots of butter and wine. So I expected these things with little idea of anything else.

The menu had all of them, but on top of not understanding the dish it was all written in Spanish to add to the difficulty. No stranger to newcomers, the waiter was quick to point out which were the more popular choices. We ordered a cheese salad and French Onion soup. I couldn’t pass that one up.
Then we moved on to the entrees. 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.
On a whole, the atmosphere was what did it for me. The elegance and tranquility of the place was wonderful. Not a place I would recommend bringing kids, simply because it’s clientele don’t seem like the kind that would tolerate little rug-rats running around. Which what makes it even more appealing!
