Lunched there on a Sunday for Easter. The service is excellent, unfortunately the seating area is too tight which makes the room too noisy... I could barely hear myself. Also the food could have been less commercial: too much salad dressing; not enough spices on my salmon ...

I always go for the duck, but whatever you choose you will enjoy it. French and international cuisine. Consistency is also why we return.

A safe bet for a good french brasserie style food. Located in the alleyway, a surprising and quiet street in busy gemmayze. Great for any occasion

The Filet Mignon and the "Entrecôte" are excellent. Accompanied with red wine and fries, yummy. By the way, try their "pain perdu" for desert; it is a sin.

An excellent brasserie, with great food. My preferred dish is the steak tartare, and a good bottle of imported french wine. The choice of wine is very good, with both local and imported.
