Hubby and I have been to La Maison twice with two different groups of friends, and both times we had such a great time just hanging out and chatting! I'm not sure if La Maison should be called a restaurant, because while it does serve hot food like pasta and soups, its main attraction is drool-inducing and elaborately colorful variety of fruit tarts served usually in a set along with a drink (tea, coffee, etc.). That is to say most people don't come to La Maison for dinner. Instead, they come for dessert with friends after lunch/dinner, to read with a slice of tart and a cup of tea, to study, to relax, etc.
Anyway, our tarts all came out on a large white plate with dollops of strawberry sauce and honey as decoration, which looks nice, but if I were to accidentally get honey onto my tart, it would become super sweet! But I guess there are lots of people out there with a crazy sweet tooth so the extra honey is there for them to indulge in ^.^
I ordered the White Peach Tart, which heavenly. I was afraid that it might be too sweet but nope, it was just perfect, though I had to maneuver a bit to avoid the extra honey.
