Trés Bien [sic] is an extremely unpopular French restaurant owned by Jean Armstrong that opened around the beginning of 2017. It has only one regular, and the unpopularity is due to the horrible taste and extremely high price of the restaurant's food (e.g., $20 for a lobster lunch set, $45 to include a drink, side salad, and dessert, and $8 for a cappuccino). The restaurant was the scene of a murder that took place in 2018.

In 2018, Glen Elg borrowed $50,000 from loan shark Furio Tigre, due to his addiction to gambling. Because of the incredible interest rate of Tigre's loan shop, this soon doubled to $100,000. With the deadline coming up and no cash on hand, Elg used his skills as a computer programmer to create a computer virus, which Tigre could then sell on the black market for millions of dollars. The scheduled meeting took place on December 3rd at Trés Bien. However, Elg won the half-million-dollar local lottery, winning more than enough money to pay off his debts, but not anywhere near enough to take care of Tigre's own debt; some weeks prior to Elg and Tigre's meeting, Tigre had crashed his moped into the car of Viola Cadaverini, the granddaughter of the powerful mob boss Bruto Cadaverini. Bruto had demanded that Tigre pay the $1 million for surgery to save Viola's life. As Tigre desperately needed the computer virus in order to sell it, he poisoned Elg using potassium cyanide and took it. In order to clear himself of suspicion, he re-enacted the crime with himself as Elg and Viola as a waitress, in order to provide a false witness for court. He disguised himself as defense attorney Phoenix Wright and took up the defense of Maggey Byrde, the prime suspect. Byrde soon got a guilty verdict thanks to Tigre's staged witness and deliberately terrible defense.
One month later, the real Phoenix Wright learned of the case and decided to appeal it. He visited Tigre's loan shop and learned of his deep debt to Bruto, as well as meeting Viola. He then took the case to court, and after tearing apart the testimony of the staged witness, he called Jean Armstrong onto the stand. Wright was able to learn that someone had coerced the owner into helping with the fake crime and hiding the real body; Wright indicted Tigre as being that someone. Wright was then able to establish Tigre's guilt by showing a bottle that contained Elg's ear medicine, but saying it really contained the potassium cyanide used to kill Elg. Tigre fell right into the trap and tried to correct Wright by revealing details about the cyanide bottle, which he could not have possibly known were he not the real killer. Maggey Byrde was subsequently declared not guilty, and Furio Tigre was taken away.
- In the Japanese version of the game, the restaurant's name is written as "吐麗美庵" (Tore Bian). This is a highly unconventional way to write the name, as kanji is rarely used for loan words; the standard way of writing the name would be in katakana, as "トレビアン" (Tore Bian).
- The "trés" in the restaurant's name should really be spelled "très" (note the accent direction). This is an example of the terribly flawed usage of French by Jean Armstrong, who is not actually from France. If spelled correctly, the full name means "very well/good" in French.
- In the French version of the game, the restaurant is Italian and called "Bellissima", which is the Italian word for "very beautiful".
- In Rise from the Ashes, Dick Gumshoe uses the back of a flyer to write a note to Miles Edgeworth. The flyer seems to be about Trés Bien, as it is mentioned as a recently opened French restaurant. The flyer is (much like the restaurant itself) extremely pink and it is possible to make out a figure on the flyer that strongly resembles Armstrong.
- A Trés Bien waitress outfit is a DLC costume for Athena Cykes in Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney: Spirit of Justice.
