Los Angeles is a very large diverse city, this is about the San Fernando Valley section of the city. The Valley is as interesting and diverse as the rest of the city.

    Our go-to restaurant on Friday nights -- food is exceptionally good, and welcome atmosphere and friendly service make every visit memorable. Fish and seafood are extremely well prepared, and oysters are always great. Don't miss the cheese bread! An added delight is the pianist/vocalist who starts at 6 pm!

    Chef Owner Michel is gracious and welcoming, as is his experienced professional staff; he has created one of the best restaurants in the North Valley. Unpretentious, and outstanding European food, with wonderful selections added daily.
