An old French restaurant which has been around for ages. The “cheapest” lunch course was 8000yen. (N.B. This place has stopped doing lunch now)

A cute box for us to take home the little sweets that we couldn’t finish. So cute!
Overall the food is not bad, but you basically get your money’s worth from the classic interior and nice atmosphere.

  1. Haha this place seems to epitomize the regal, beautiful & elegant FRENCH stereotypical Japanese has. The sweets are oldschool and classic feel too (not the fancy mousse cake from the 90s French boom). The lobster salad looks good. But yeah other than that, the menu seems a little too ‘classic’.

  2. Decades ago when French restaurants were not common at all, this place must have been popular? Nowadays you can get pretty cheap and good quality French food easily, it is amazing that this place still survive!

  3. There must be loyal older crowds prefer these old classics restaurants they started going since back in the days. Man those red curtains…^^;;
