On Main Street in Santa Monica, we stumbled upon this hidden gem. From the outside, this is a rather unassuming restaurant. But once we stepped inside, we found it charming and tres chic (this is a French restaurant, after all). We were seated on the back patio which was impeccably and luxuriously decorated with chandeliers and fanciful wall paper.
The champagne ($38 per bottle) was delightful, but the food was the star here - it was phenomenal and reasonably priced at $16-22 per entree. Everyone loved their meal. This spot is a sure hit.
