    Only open during the during winter season. Classic fare, affordable, a local secret and reservations are a must. Hard to find, doesn't look like much from the outside.

    Hard place to get into because the locals all get there first, and for good reason. Delicious, unassuming home cooking, huge portions, and at a great price.

    First to Review

    This is the best kept secret restaurant in Palm Springs.


    First, they are only open during the winter months. The owners spend their summers in France.

    Second, there is no signage. You have to know where this place is to eat here. Even if you are close, you may have trouble finding it without a sign.

    Third, after you think you have found it, there isn't a lot of parking. There is no lot, no valet, just wherever you can park on the street nearby, and the street is being worked on with construction, so access is limited.

    Fourth, even though the casual visitors and tourists don't know about this place, a lot of locals do. So getting a reservation in here is challenging. My business associate who brought me here booked it 3 weeks in advance, and his only choices were 5:30 or 9:00 pm.

    Fifth, this place is reasonably priced. There isn't an entree over $20!
    That includes Steaks, Osso Buco, Pasta, Salmon, every entree.

    Sixth, the food is good. No overly stacked designer plate ups, pretentious names and exotic ingredients, just straight forward, classic dishes that everyone can enjoy.

    Seventh, the service is friendly and welcoming, professional and well timed without getting in the way.

    Eighth, about 60% of the tables are outside on their patio, which is privately surrounded and can't be looked into from the outside, and their are heaters for the night chill. So a pleasant environment and fresh air to enjoy your food.

    We had two starters, two entrees, two call brand drinks each, and the total was $88.

    You will need a reservation. Be sure to ask for patio seating.
