Hidden spot in Ueno, French cuisine

On a small street in Ueno-Ikenohata(上野池之端), there is a very small but nice French restaurant called "Caudarie(コーダリー)."  This is a hidden name restaurant. It's difficult to make a reservation. They have only 16 seats. Luckily to me, I got a reservation for the first time since more than an year. Tables were fully occupied. 
Entrance of Caudarie 
Inside of Caudarie
Champagne and white wine
Bread (super delicious!!)
Foie gras with prune
Grilled scallop 
Red wine
Beef with red wine sauce 
Venison steak with port wine sauce 
Grape fruits sorbet 
Pear compote with caramel ice cream
Chocolate cake with berries 
Coffee and sweets 
Here, we can taste sophisticated French dishes in a relaxed atmosphere at reasonable price. It is indeed a small restaurant, but the taste and presentation are in the foremost rank. Strong impression of each dish is still left on me. Selection and preservation of wines are also good. A sommelier who is the owner of Caudarie selects suitable wines if you tell him your preference and budget. 

Also, breads served are super. So delicious. I can rate 5 for the breads. I want to come Caudarie even only for eating breads. The texture, salt balance, taste are perfect. I wish Caudarie to be more popular, but at the same time I would like to keep it secret... Even dinner, we can taste a set meal at JPY4,950(tax and service charge are also inclusive!). Cost performance is very high. My rating is 4.6 out of 5. Gochiso-samadeshita!
