Small and cozy place in the heart on Colonia Roma, the epicenter of entertainment in the city. Mainly French food with Argentinean and Italian touches that correspond to the owner’s origins. On the menu, Nocoise salads and the chicken casserole are highlighted as the typical French dishes, but it also has a variety of delicious pizzas and grilled cuts. Pequeño y acogedor sitio en el corazón de la colonia Roma, el epicentro del entretenimiento de nuestra ciudad. Comida principalmente francesa con toques argentinos e italianos que corresponden a los orígenes de los dueños. En la carta destacan las ensaladas Nicoise y el pollo casserole como platillos típicos franceses pero también tiene una variedad deliciosa de pizzas y unos cortes de parrilla.
