[ADVERT]With breathtaking views of the Harbour, the dining setting is peaceful and exotic. It is great value, with popular three courses (entrees, mains and desserts) for lunch and dinner at fixed prices of $38 and $60 respectively (see the lunch menu). Other options include a la carte and wine drinking packages. The staff are friendly and showcase fluent French skills, making the degustation an authentic French experience.
I went to the restaurant as a school group ($22) with different three course menu options.
Favourite menu items include escargot de bourgogne, salmon roulette and praline ice cream. A translation of the first of those items are a French delight, snails topping the list. I believe it is a common delicacy in France but I must admit, the idea of eating snails is quite strange. According to unreliable sources, it tastes like chicken. According to the same unreliable source, so does everything else. I did not try the snails out of fear but I will next time.
The desserts are by far, my favourite. A must have in my opinion is the praline ice cream as pictured above and the classic crème caramel. See for yourself.

I've never tried snails, but it is more because I've never been to restaurant where they were on the menu. I'm not worried about the taste, it is more the texture that gets me, because I've heard they are quite chewy.
