Francophiles rejoice: be transported to the heart of Paris at this award-winning international chain serving up the eternal French classic of snails and meat-heavy mains of slow-cooked duck, sirloin steak and rack of lamb. High-end nosh is the order of the day, but the restaurant maintains a casual vibe well-suited for both a tête-à-tête or a more rambunctious social affair.

While the kitchen closes between lunch and dinner, the bar is still open for those looking for an al fresco tipple on the terrace.
