Have eaten here several times now. This was a Saturday lunch for four. There is quite a wide choice of dishes and menu combinations. I had for my main course veal which included kidneys as well as chunks of meat. We all enjoyed the meal. Many of the dishes are twists on traditional French classics

We were very lucky to get the table without reservation. Staff was very friendly and helpful! Food was magnificent! They have set menus but also ordering separate dishes or combining is not a problem. One improving point - they should have menus in English. The price is not low but well worth it for the quality of the food. I... More

I'm not an expert on this sort of thing but this seems to be an ideal, traditional restaurant with high quality regional cuisine. If you want a better people-watching venue then go to the restaurants over the road in the Rue du Vaugueux. But if you want delicious, hearty food and very friendly, efficient service then come here. We had... More

My wife and I had just spent a tense couple of hours sorting out a travel arrangements snafu. Hoping for a good meal at a relaxing sort of place, we took a chance and came here without a reservation. We were seated immediately and found the service friendly, the setting comfortable and the food delicious. We both had the three-course... More

As the other reviews have stated the service was incredible, our waitress helped us greatly as we do not speak French. My girlfriend and I both got the 3 course dinner and each course was delicious and came quickly in succession. Its a very small restaurant but the atmosphere was cozy, and it was not too loud. Our total with... More

This is a very popular restaurant at the entrance to the Vaugueux dining area. It is usually packed so best to book. Quite cramped and lively, but that is a good part of the attraction. Mainly French people but also popular with tourists and friendly waiting staff will help with the menu if required. This has a Michelin Bibendum rating... More
