It was a Tuesday evening in autumn 2019 , we walked down a flight of stairs and stepped into this newly Michelin Star awarded restaurant which was situated in the basement of The Estem Plaza .
The decor was simple and elegant . There were 4 round tables with very spacious and relaxed ambience . There was a courtyard outside the bay-window of the restaurant with candles lights , in glass lanterns , dancing on the ground .
The waitress was pretty and friendly but most importantly, she could communicate in English with us.
The food was , with ingredients very fresh and carefully selected, prepared and plated in a very traditional French style. We can see and taste the passion and heart from the chef’s cooking and preparation. However, there’s lack of the “wow” effect in the arrangements and plate decorations of the dishes. Thus this might keep some customers away because people like to see beautiful things.
The chef kindly shared his favorite Montrachet with us while we brought and shared with him one of our bottle ( a Bordeaux favorite, Chateau Latour) . We also ordered one 2002 Alsace wine from the wine list . Overall, the dinner was enjoyable and delicious but the dishes needed some more creativity and improvement to make it memorable and enticing the customers to return in the future.


This is a one of most delicious french restaurant in Osaka. When you go to Osaka castle, you should better eat hear.


Although it is located in the basement of a building, there is a garden surrounded by walls, so you don't feel like you are underground.
Rather, it is a tranquil space isolated from the hustle and bustle of the city, creating a calm atmosphere.
I received a course of choice, and each dish was small, but the portions were just right, not too much, not too little, and the style was to serve a large number of items.
Everything was delicious, and there were some dishes that I hadn't had anywhere else, and I was impressed by the chef's creativity.
In particular, I felt that the handling of seafood awakened the taste and sensibility of Japanese people.
And the main dish, duck, is also exquisite.
No wonder it has a Michelin star.
The price is reasonable, but it's worth it.
