Our Story

Lina Yew still remembers her first taste of duck confit. Just moved to Paris, first night out, and stumbled onto a little bistro just two doors from home. She took the recommendation and ordered the Confit de Canard. Her first bite into the luscious duck leg, she thought to herself, this is the best thing ever. A love affaire for French bistro faire started there.


Mathilde French Bistro is a partnership of Lina Yew and her husband Thierry Clement, also chef owner of L'ardoise French bistro. We want to provide authentic French bistro food in a relaxing ambiance, where you feel like you are at our home. 


As you enter the door of Mathilde French Bistro, your senses will be delighted by the delicious aroma of French cuisine and the light-filled dining room. The design is clean and modern yet still evokes a nostalgic sense of the campagne rustique. The replica 17th Century gilded wall sconces, the antique hot air balloon chandelier, and the whimsical bust of "La Marianne" transport your senses to France.

We hope to make your dining experience with us as memorable as Lina's first bite of duck confit.
