My BFF and I loved everything we ordered! So amazing! So appropriate for our little celebration. The wait staff are so kind and attentive. Definitely coming here again.

We started with this amazing cheese soufflé, made of nutmeg and tomme de savoie (made from raw, skimmed cow’s milk after the cream has been drained off to make butter, thus making providing low fat content). It was fluffy (as expected) yet flavorful. Will definitely order this again.

The staff recommended this off-menu dish, simple salad with pan fried foie gras. The salad is lightly dressed, worked amazing with all the euphoric taste from perfectly seasoned and cooked foei gras. So blissful.

Another off the menu recommendation, scallops, shrimps and seabass with pasta. The sauce was creamy but delightful. Went really well with the seafood.

To cap everything, we had this fresh mango mille-feuilles (also known as napoleon) with almond cream and sauce. Though the mangoes are not the sweetest (must be because of the season), the mille-feuilles and almond cream are so light. Perfect with coffee.
