The restaurant claims to serve authentic French and Asian cuisine, however, my husband and I were totally underwhelmed by the few French dishes we selected. There was more burnt bread than onion in the French onion soup and I couldn't taste any butter in the soup. The other appetizer we ordered, which is similar to the Italian bruschetta, was supposed to come with Goat Cheese but had some other block of cheese (maybe mozzarella?). My main course was a scallop dish but the scallops were quite small in size and didn't seemed to be have pan seared at all. The cream sauce that came with it was excessively salty. The baked layered potato was probably the only saving grace. Admittedly, the pricing here is very pocket friendly, but with so many dining options in Ubud and many more opening up, cheap and average food just can't make the cut anymore.

Somehow get a seat for member of 4.

Menus are excellent, taste was okay, maybe not familiar with French taste.

See happy faces on other customers.

Must try the Smoothies !!

this restaurant is located in a small street with a lot of other restaurants and shops, close to the market. Unfortunately, the convenient location is one of the few things in its favour. The menu is extensive. I had the French fried rice, really was more of a risotto. Good, but not great. My husband had the pepper steak: tasty with good sauce, but tough and grizzly. The service was polite and prompt. My suggestion to the restaurant management: fewer dishes on the menu but make sure those that are there are done well.

Been to this resto many times. Whenever i came to Ubud, i must visit and eat at here. The owner is an old French lady.

The food is awesome and the price are stunningly cheap. The ambiance is also not fancy and really cozy. A bit difficult to find for the first timer since located jn a small alley callef Gautama street.

But seriously worth the time to come.

Check it out
