Picture yourself back in the neighbourhoods of Cannes’ bay or on the French Riviera, south of France where you can enjoy French seafood platters or oysters while sipping Rose wine while watching the beautiful scenery of the Chao Phraya river banks .

Lush tropical foliage, chic tropical French setting is relaxed and welcoming to all, whether inside with a glass of chilled wine and enjoy viewing riverfront patio watching the Chao Phraya roll by.

It is a world dedicated to the pleasure of the taste buds with many ways to give in to temptation.

Here fish and seafood took a larger focus, sauces became lighter, and tropical ingredients were incorporated. Menus special’s are changing according to seasons and availability.

A live oyster and wine bar take centre stage at the restaurant, allowing diners to choose from a variety of fresh oysters and an approachable selection of French wines.  The seafood towers, daily le plat du jour, and of course savoury and sweet palmiers, served in an environment ideal for sociable dining. A great oyster selection for tasing plates…Boudeuse, special gillardeau, the fine the claires of Marennes Oléron.  Juicy with a balanced taste, great platter as sharing starter…

Tuna Tartare with Avocado, Mango, Fresh Basil, Pickled Ginger. We loved also the marinated sardine tartines served with Tomato Marmalade. Travel to West coast of France in Brittany with this healthy and tasty starter. It is also an excellent source of calcium and nutrient essential for bone health.

Foie Gras Terrine Gingerbread, Mango-Timut Pepper Marmalade. Pan-fried Sole Grenobloise Capers, Lemon, Parsley, Croutons. Tender and mild, the sole is steamed and drizzled with butter and served with lemon juice and parsley unlike “à la meunière” cooked with flour.

The menu includes numerous sharing-style dishes, many of the dishes include an element of tableside preparation, these are one of unique services here.
