Nice place for some ambiance (with live music or the radio speakers on a fairly high level), hence not the greatest restaurant. Fastfood-like presentation and rather small portions. The dessert (moelleux) was great in presentation, but not freshly-made and didn't "run" at all. In summary, great location in the city centre and stylish interior. Great for having a cocktail!

It far surpassed our expectations! The food was delicious, the presentation lovely and our waiter attentive. I'm sensitive to noise, but did not have a problem with the music volume,... More

We had a tasty lunch sitting on the terrace, facing the sun on a winter's day. The service differed. The waitress was friendly but seemed untrained whilst the waiter, who did an excellent job filleting our fish, was a pro. We had an aperitif and felt that a little dish of olives or savouries could have been offered with it.... More

During high season there is always a nice ambience there, from time to time life music. Try out their (alcohol-free) cocktails!
