This bistro currently offers evening dining from 5.30 p.m. on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays in addition to it's daytime service. The Specials menu and à la carte both offer a good varied choice including vegetarian. We enjoyed options from both. The food was well prepared and tasted great. Service was friendly and efficient. The atmosphere is very pleasant.
