Went there for dinner with my family since it was full the previous night , first thing that annoyed us was the huge crowd, felt stuffy and literally had no space . Second thing that was a bit annoying was the Music . The band was good but it was so loud you couldn't hear yourself think . Last but... More

If it was only for the food, I would give this restaurant a good/very good, instead of excellent. We chose it primarly for its look, which is completely different to the tourist-feeding fabrics nearby: this restaurant is full of charme; very nice and original interior and exterior, very very friendly, attentive and quick service; brief a familiar atmosphere. I went... More

Ate here several times over several years. Food is excellent and the hosts very freindly. Love the Jazz nights on Friday and Saturday.

We ate here last night and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The seafood salad and the vegetarian lasagne were both delicious. It is a casual place, but good ambience. We are returning again for the moules and frites which we have heard are delicious.

We had dinner with friends and will never come back again. Very poor service combined with below average food and a above average. The area has so many nice a good restaurants that this one should not be an alternative. Our simple request to un bone the fish was answered 'I don't know how to do it'.

We had booked a terrace table a couple of nights before and a good table was duly waiting for us. We had the house wine and carafe d'eau. We had the trinquette assiette and Darse salad to start. Then we had another large seafood salad and a fish dish with whole baked fish. We shared the main courses and a... More

Had dinner here while at the Institut de Francais, December 2013. The main dish of the meal was a tartiflette, which was just OK. Fairly filling, but couldn't really taste anything in it due to how incredibly hot it was. Too hot. The wine was pretty good though. Was really just an average dining experience, on the whole.

We had a great, fun night at La Trinquette. There was a Bossa Nova band that was truly great. Not a fancy place, more like a local hangout. Good food and prices. Don't miss it if it's music night and reserve ahead as they had to turn people away!!!!

Quite nice after having taken a cold bath (ten degrees at best)! After a hearty welcome, I and my kids were introduced into a cosy and comfortable dinner room. We could afford a tasty meal with good wine. The children doted upon sea brass and mussels. I, for one, prefered the beef.
