French cuisine splendor at Le Jardin



Cooking is an essential part of the French culture. Its people take pride in preparing elegant, good-tasting culinary meals that is why France is world-renowned as home of some of the finest cuisines. Parisians take their flair for food seriously from seafood, mountain lamb to game meat.



Le Jardin offers excellent French multicourse meals to your liking. It is definitely a step up from restaurants that serve traditional French dishes. Their degustation menu allows you to pick 4-6 dinner options:

4 Courses (P 2,800), 5 Courses (P 3,200), 6 courses (P 3,600 +10% service charge)

We were served complementary Bread and Amuse Bouche to start off the French meal experience.

Appetizers

Here are some of the Hot and Cold Appetizers to choose from.
Top to bottom: Conquilles St. Jacques Poelees, Puree de Pommes de Terre Aux Truffles / Crevettes Sautées aux Epices / Assiette de Trois Foie Gras 




Conquilles St. Jacques Poelees, Puree de Pommes de Terre Aux Truffles is sautéed scallops French appetizer served with mashed potatoes.
Escargot de Bourgogne is Burgundy Snails in Garlic and Parsley Butter. These mouth-watering snails appetizer is a perfect pair for crusty bread. It's a meal itself with their thinly-scored baguette. I love to soak up the bread with its buttery juice. 

 
Main Course



Pave de thon et foie gras poele, sauce aux truffle is Grilled Tuna Steak with seared Foie Gras and Truffle sauce.
Filet de Boeuf Sauce Au Poivre is Grilled US Beef Tenderloin with Pepper Sauce. These are hearty-red, savory beef filets. Its sauce makes these fabulous meat cuts taste even better.
Souris D' Agneau  are fall-off-the-bone Braised Lamb Shanks. I had this for my main course and found the lovely aroma of its succulent meat very appetizing! The tender meat and flavorsome sauce makes it a real winner. The accompanying Mashed Potatoes complements this superb dish.

Coq au Vin is Organic, Free-Range Chicken Braised in Red Wine and Bacon. This French Chicken Casserole comes in a rich and thick sauce.

Terrine de Cochon, Farcie au Foie Gras is Pork belly Cooked Sous Vide stuffed with Foie Gras.



We were then served a cheese plate after a serving of Lemon Sorbet, a palate cleanser. The in-house cow cheeses came in with baguette slices.










For Desserts, they offer 7 options to choose from.




Fondant au chocolat is a decadent French hot pudding dessert with a molten middle. This spectacular hot chocolate pud is simply irresistible! And they serve it with Sebastian's Vanilla Ice Cream for added pleasure! This lovely dessert was very tasty that the plate was cleared instantly!


Profiterole au chocolat is chou pastry with chocolate plus ice cream with almond bits.

Do visit Le Jardin for elegant food cooked in the classic French way. Along with its incredible French cuisine, Le Jardin makes its own breads, cheeses, and desserts to complement every meal.

Savor and appreciate the splendor of French cuisine with a good view of the Metro Manila Skyline! Le Jardin is a perfect place for a romantic date!

  2. I wish they serve 3-course meals too. The last time I had a 4-course meal, I was too full. Haha! But thanks for sharing this. The restaurant definitely looks worth checking out, especially for special, romantic dinners with the hubby. :)

  4. Finding a restaurant for special occasions is hard. That's why, I am thankful is someone shares elegant restaurants that aren't far (proximity) and kind of affordable. All the dishes look enticing but I'd rather take time with Fondant au chocolat! hahahaha Anything but sweets, Millet :)
