 It's a nice surprise as a French restaurant away from city centre and people would doubt its authenticity as a French restaurant especially in an Arab hotel.  However, it didn't let me down.

The crispy pork belly is well made with thin crispy skin and juicy meat, though the bottom of it is slightly dry.  It matched nicely with the mashed potato to balance its complicated taste. The meat is tender and gives a good contrast to the crispy skin.  Highly recommended.

Foie gras terrine is good and the combination of it with the slightly sweet brioche is cool especially matching them with a glass of red wine.

Frog legs are good and it's so special to serve in a pot, matched with the chessy and tomato sauce.  However when it is served if the backbone of the frog is excluded it would be better as its too difficult to eat it with fork and knife.

It's a very nice surprise in the Arab area for such an authentic French restaurant.  Also the service is attentive and the waiter and waitresses are quick to give appropriate response.  Only thing to criticize is how to place the cutlery on the table.
Yuzu cake - this one is too Japanese to be in a French restaurant
