Chef Christophe brought some French flavour to Escazu! Petit four, little cakes and lots of other French flavours are here. But not only sweets, hearty meals like croque monsieur, croissants or even a slice of perfectly cooked meat is on the menu. Have a look at their FB page and you know what I am talking about. Worthwhile your time... More

The place is very regular, they need a bigger parking lot and even a bigger place! It is that good, that most of the time is almost full of people! The coffee, in my opinion was good, but not impressive. But all the desserts, breads and bakery..wow, is just perfect! Full of taste, very well done. Cant say anything to... More

I have visited this restaurant a handful of times now for lunch. I always get the same order, and the lunch waiters already know this! Lunch is delicious, it's not too big and not too small, hits just the spot. But the best part...the decadent little cakes! I have to pace myself each time I go because they are so... More

Just 5 of us to celebrate a delightful meal.. The food was excellent.. We sampled most of the plates of the house and everyone voted great for the quality, the service and the flavors.. A nice place to eat on a quiet afternoon mid week.. The pastries must be mentioned.. Instead of a cake, we each had two of the... More

I have tried better french bakery and bistros, went for brunch on a Sunday. The french toast was too soggy and way too sweat, my gf ordered an omelette, I find it silly the prices for any extra for the omelette, there should be categories for this, don't charge the same for chives or onions or cheese or any meat....
