The dining room is nice and bright, the servers are very knowledgeable and attentive. The food is delicious and the presentation is beautiful. Since my colleagues actually knows Chef Galliot, he came out and chatted with us for a little while!

|The bread basket|
Is it just me or are all French restaurants now serving Robuchon-styled bread these days?
Don't get me wrong though, the bread is delicious. I am just curious.
|Our server highly recommended this bread to us.|
He even brought 2 extra to us when he noted there was only 1 in the basket!
It's a sour dough with walnut and raisins
A seriously good bread especially with their salted butter!
|amuse boucheSalmon with Dill Cream and Caviar|
The flavor combination is classic and excellent.
I have a good feeling about this meal already.Side note: This is also offered as one of the appetizers.
|The lack of bacon is remediated with a freah prosciutto biscuit|
crispy, savory, and delicious
|Whiting Fish Nage, Fresh Coriander Emulsion and Marinated Tomato with Sumac|
I really like my entree as well.
The fish is pan-fried perfectly and the sauce is a very nice compliment to the fish.
Since there were three of us, we decided to order all the desserts offered and shared among ourselves. My favorite is the panna cotta but the clafutis is yummy as well.
|Gariguette Strawberry Clafoutis with Fromage Blanc Sorbet|
This one is the lightest of the three desserts offered.
The texture is almost like a sponge cake.
|Vanilla honey panna cotta, textures of mango and fresh raspberries|
As mentioned, this is my favorite.
Loved the jello like texture of the panna cotta.
It's light and refreshing.
|Dark Chocolate Torte, Marshmallow and Graham Cracker Ice Cream|
This is good and i would probably like it more in the fall / winter.
This is spring and I preferred something light and fruity
|Decaf Latte with a small macaroon|
My body is not taking caffeine well lately.
Normally it doesn't affect me and I sleep just fine.
The price of the 3-course prix fixe is phenomenal (MOP$258 per person plus 10% service fee) and for a Michellin-rated restaurant, this is a great value! (2015 note: not sure if the price went up since they did earned another star.) The menu changes regularly and it's usually posted on their Facebook page. Now I have another place to take my friends when they are in town!
