WHY GO

This French bistro con­ve­niently of­fers Euro­pean cui­sine in a busy mall com­plex with ser­vice and a menu se­lec­tion wor­thy of a five-star ho­tel. Its ta­ble set­ting and in­te­ri­ors ex­ude an old world ap­peal, while its walls are strewn with paint­ings by the late Filipino master, Onib Olmedo, re­flect­ing the own­ers’ bor­der­less phi­los­o­phy to its cui­sine.

TATLER TIPS

The seafood soup is an ex­cel­lent light yet hearty soup with gen­er­ous chunks of fish, squid, clams, and scal­lops. The house spe­cial­ity, po­tence, named af­ter the metal gal­low the grilled beef ten­der­loin is hung on, then flam­béed ta­ble side with lam­banog (co­conut liqueur) for a flavour­ful fin­ish. The five-hour French duck leg is an un­der­rated gem of a dish, with its fall-off-the-bones savoury meat gen­tly cooked for five hours with white beans, pancetta, and toma­toes.
