Smoked duck and Brie Salad RM19
We started with this heavenly melted brie on baguette drizzled with honey and coarsely ground black pepper served with green salad, walnuts, French dressing and divine air-dried smoked duck.

Small Mix Platter (1-2 person) RM41
A combination of parma cured ham, saucisson, country-style pate, chicken pate and smoked duck breast complemented with a refreshing salad, creamy gherkin sauce and caramelized onions.

The cured meats were heavenly with a good depth of flavour.

Mediterranean Fish Soup RM17
The hearty soup made with four types of fish namely red mullet, seabass, threadfin and white seabream, all combined in a lovely tomato herbs broth was Chef Flo's father's secret blend.

The soup was served with rouille sauce, croutons and grated emmental cheese on the side to be added in the soup.

The hearty and warming soup filled with gooey melted cheese, crunchy croutons and a true burst of Mediterranean flavour were amazing.

Baked Red Mullet RM36
Tender and succulent, the whole deboned red mullet baked in 'papillote' with vegetable julienne laden in a creamy chive sauce comes in generous portion was remarkably good.

Duck confit RM45
The slow cooked duck leg cured in sea salt drizzled with creamy brandy sauce was served with individual sides dishes of baked potatoes and ratatouille.

Slightly salty, the duck was meltingly tender and bold in flavour.

Floating Island RM11
Light as air yet crisp on the outside, the soft meringue floating in a pool of delicious caramel and vanilla custard topped with crunchy almond surely satisfy your sweet tooth craving.

Tart and juicy slices of apple on a crumbly pastry, absolutely mouth-watering.
