A small (with 3 tables) cozy french restaurant in Shinjuku area. We went here for dinner. The dinner menu has set menu with appetizers and main entrees for 4000, 5000 or 6000 yen. The salad, salmon mousse, pate are delicious. The main entrees we ordered were steaks and duck. The duck meat was so tender!! The wine can be ordered by glass or bottle. It's quality is acceptable but not great.


One of the best French in Shinjuku. Used to be shady brunch of well known restaurant that doesn’t exist anymore.
Chef is so studious always serve us new tastes with very reasonable price. I heard some of Michelin guide doesn’t like there but everyone who spent in France, all loves the restaurant. Better to reserve with call, most of days seats are occupied.


I had a chance to go to Shinjuku, so I went there for a French lunch.
If you are looking for a reasonably priced restaurant with a good reputation, come here.
With reservations, the restaurant starts at 12:00 at lunchtime and is fully booked.
The chef is very busy💦
The food was simple, nothing fancy, but I was satisfied.
The bread is also very delicious.
The inside of the store is small and there are no windows, so it feels stuffy, but the prices are reasonable so I don't mind.
Sorry to see the waitress seems so busy! When I called out, a chef came out from inside and took care of me.
I kept an eye on the table while I was cooking.
It's really amazing.
I learned a lot about the attitude of running a restaurant and cooking.
thank you very much.
