We absolutely love visiting Bar Tabac. The food, ambiance, and people are amazing. I highly recommend the Sauteed Calamari, Shrimp & Avocado Salsa, Onion Soup Gratinee, and Les Moules!

Enjoyable, especially music, food, environment. Highly recommended! A bit noisy at times but a crowd is a good sign.
