The decoration and renovation at this restaurant is dreamy and romantic; the ambience is also nice and quiet, which together created just the right setting for a romantic dinner for two. Waiters are always attentive and professional, ready to greet and serve customers with warm smiles and ready hands. The main menu is a French eight-course meal, somewhat of a rare find here in Wuhan; all the entrees and side dishes are beautifully decorated, in particular the rose verrines for dessert – served with dry ice to entice a dream-like mood. And of course, the taste is genuinely good. Other recommended dishes include garlic bread, filet mignon, carpaccio, caramel pumpkin pudding, smoked duck breast and bamboo shoots salad, escargot soup, etc.

Choosing blue as a main color for décor is something not often seen in Wuhan – but this bright color does really work for highlighting the avant-garde feel that the owner is obviously going for with his venue. The restaurant is located not far away from the bustle and neon lights of the downtown area – but tucked just enough away to offer a bit of peace and quiet from the daily rush and noise. There are graffiti drawings on the front entrance to the venue – making it unique and easily recognizable. The venue is small and is decorated with accents of Aegean Sea blue – adding to the ambience that is very romantic and cozy. Tableware at the venue is also unique to the place. Menus for light meals, such as sandwiches and salads, change from day-to-day, and drinks and desserts at the place are also delicious. It is a perfect little venue for making dates with friends for afternoon tea or casual meet-up at dinner, or even business lunches and romantic dates.
