Maison Francaise
5 Jalan Changkat Kia Peng, KL
+603 2144 1474
Set in a converted three-storey mansion along Jalan Changkat Kia Peng, Maison Francaise (French House) is a French fine-dining restaurant with a romantic, vintage feel. There is a classic Rolls Royce parked in the driveway out front and the interior design of the restaurant is classy with white walls, terrazzo floors, modern crystal chandeliers and white tablecloth-covered tables. The place is divided into three areas: upstairs is a private cigar lounge, while the ground floor houses the main dining hall which has a patio that overlooks a garden and has views of KLCC. Also on the ground floor is an al fresco dining section surrounding a swimming pool: here, there is a cocktail bar and lounge chairs and tables under a canopy of trees, fairy lights threaded through the greenery and a view to the stars.

Heading the kitchen is executive chef Franck Lamache, who used to work in Les Ambassadeurs and Le Taillevent – Michelin-standard restaurants in Paris. Serving French food (with an emphasis on southern French dishes) the food here is without a doubt tasty: they serve different complimentary amuse bouches every night. Food presentation is artsy and some dishes look almost too pretty to eat.
Opening Hours:
noon – midnight
