My daughter decided to take me to diner and since I spent the last 20 years living and dining in Europe she chose this delightful little bistro in Ft Lauderdale. We had a wonderful meal that was on par with many of the best restaurants I frequented in France and elsewhere in Europe.
Food - The food was first rate. It was fresh, tasty, and well presented. My daughter had a hamburger, that a friend had recommended, and she wasn't disappointed. I think I'll try that the next time I go provided it is still on the menu. I had the mussels and since I lived in Belgium, this was a test match meal, since I have had some awesome mussels. I can only say they were as good as any I have ever had. Large, succulent mussels that had all opened and the sauce was excellently prepared. I was very impressed. These were the best mussels I have had in the US bar none. Pictures of our meals are attached.
Service - The service was excellent. Courteous, pleasant, knowledgeable, and attentive without hovering. She was able to answer all of our questions about the menu and wine and was able to make informed recommendations. She recommended the mussels.
Place/atmosphere - The key word here is bistro although it is on the upscale side of the traditional bistro outside of France. It is small, cozy, warm, and comforting. The decor is simple, but very nice and tasteful. They also have a few tables out on the street that face the park across the street. Parking is on the street and can be a challenge, like everywhere else in Ft Lauderdale, but plan on a few extra minutes to find parking and you'll be fine. Use your GPS to find this nice little out of the way bistro. You won't be disappointed.
Cost - Since I wasn't allowed to pay the bill I can't say exactly what was paid, but overall, I think the food and wine are reasonably priced for the area. And considering the quality of the food and excellent service this bistro is good value for your money.
