Great food and lovely atmosphere Pain perdu: the best in town I recommand Gemmayze branch because it is larger than dbaye so it's less crowded

We went twice in a row after the first trial. Definitely a must try restaurant. Delicious steak and salads, especially the calamari one. Must try the 4 cheese quiche as well. Pain perdu is the star! Don't miss it. Staff very welcoming and helpful. Very prompt service.

The waiters were very thoughtful and went out of their way to please us and meet our requests. It was a pleasure to see waiters who smiled as they delivered the specials of the day.
