There are more and more nice restaurants opening on Commercial Dr.

Absinthe is one of our favorite French restaurants.

High quality and reasonably priced!

It looks small and we was a bit worried the first time we got there because it’s relatively quiet compared to its neighbors.

The menu is fixed priced with two courses or three courses, which is perfect for people who have difficulty in making choices (like us).

The duck leg smells really good. The skin is crunchy.

Everything is perfect.

Molten Chocolate Lava Cake with House made Vinilla Bean Ice Cream

DSC05997

Pretty good but not as impressive as their starters and main courses.

The vanilla bean ice cream is a bit disappointing.

The fragrance and the taste of vanilla is not strong enough.

It’s not like what we would find in other high end restaurants but it’s reasonably priced and the food is tasty.

Very comfortable to dine in. The service, the smiles, the decorations, the food…all are lovely.
