Jean and Adrian, our hosts at La Maison Blanche, recommended this place to us and even booked us reservations the night of the Celtic concert. The food was typical French fare but probably some of the best tasting food I'd had. The service was a little hit or miss, owing to the fact that they were very busy but the servers were extremely nice and even tried their English on us.
Favorite Dish: I had a really good salad to start and a kind of pork confit for my entree. I also tried an amazing fruit tart for dessert.Related to:
