We just had dinner in that small restaurant. Nice location, pleasant environment, good food. A little slow, but probably we were tired to enjoy a long dinner.

A wonderful restaurant, just what you need excellent service from the owners who choose the wine for you based on the meal you are having. The food is excellent simple but perfect and the wine is exquisite. So good I went back 3 times over 4 weeks and will go back again. Excellent couldn't recommend this restaurant best in Fontainebleau.

Great food. Friendly staff. Small menu but each dish very well prepared. Reasonable price. Quaint restaurant just off Fontainebleau's Main Street.

I can definitely see the appeal of the place -- you can go, have cheese and tapas and a nice wine in a cozy setting. We had a full dinner, and I ordered beef that ended up being very overcooked, and then replaced with an inferior cut of meat (they ran out of what I'd ordered, was the explanation). They... More

The menu is short, it is fresh, it is good. Choose from tapas, plates of dry hams or fish followed by a choice of two or three cooked dishes. It's a simple menu on the board. We ate a plate of 'apero' items... Chorizo, dry ham and excellent tapenade followed by a huge piece of grilled tuna with fried green... More

First of all, book....we called to b told they were full, then asked if minded waiting until 21:30. So glad we waited, the place, small, was full of locals. The welcome was very friendly and the food, very good. We had escargot followed by Puma iberique, which, according to a diner on another table is the graze in France at... More

I enjoyed the simple, yet delicious menu. My favorite part was the traditional home kitchen French atmosphere, and the wonderful and inventive wine. I prefer the lunch menu, to the dinner menu.

One of the best kept secrets in town. An amazing wine selection. This is a place to sit back, drink a couple of bottles of wine and let the server bring you dish after dish of delicious tapas. Get the pata negra, the little sausage in wine & potato dish and anything else really. Then, ask for the desserts ;... More
