Onion gratin soup. Roasted lamb in dried tomato sauce. Both were very good! My friend ordered guinea fowl and gave me a bite to try, very yummy too. The waitress was very friendly.

Ginger Blanc manger and chocolate mousse. The dessert is a bit weak, compared to the good quality of previous courses. Lunch menu is surprisingly large to give more variety than most French restaurants offer at lunch. Price ranging from 1000yen to 2800yen. Took a bunch of friends who were rather broke but wanted good food, so the 1000yen lunch was my original plan. But once I said the onion soup was very good here, and only the 2800yen lunch included that…plan changed immediately. ^^;;
Been here before(see tag). I wanted the same onion soup but I completely forgot that I had lamb last time and ordered lamb again….even the sauce was the same! Damn! ^^;; Oh and you don’t have to split from big plates yourself at lunch time. Great for lazy butts like me!

Organic salad. Most are cooked vegetables, very nice!
Marinated sea bream.

My god this is the best onion soup I have ever had! The soup is clear but with rich onion flavour; the soft slices of onions, the grilled melted cheese, the French bread soaked with the soup, are all perfect! I want to eat it again~~

Roasted lamb with dried tomato sauce. The lamb is soft and not too fatty, the sauce has strong herb and chilli flavour, the side potato gratin is good too. Then I was a bit disppointed when the dessert came out…but the Creme Brulee has very rich vanilla flavour, and the mango sorbet and the peach compote are not bad.
We ordered the 5000yen dinner course. The salad, the sea bream and the lamb came in big plates for sharing between two people. The onion gratin soup and the dessert are of course for one person. We printed out a coupon from the homepage and got ourselves free Kir Royal, very good and strong alcohol for a free drink! Also ordered glass wine later but it was like 600yen a glass, very cheap. The only thing is, whether you order A la carte or full course, you have to share from a big plate and split yourself….and I am the laziest person on earth and hate doing that especially in French or Italian restaurants…the food gets cold quickly. ^^;;
