Overall disappointed and probably won't go back. Okay well I will start out with the good. It is in the market Capucins, casual and a really nice setting with people from all walks of life. I really like that, but that is the atmosphere of this market and not really anything brought upon by the restaurant itself. We brought out five year old who was comfortable and enjoyed the place too. You don't have to worry about your young children making too much noise or moving around because it is the market and pretty relaxed. The menu is limited, but we knew that before coming. Basically mussels and homemade fries, omelettes, steak, and ventriche (not sure what that is in english, like thick bacon). We stuck with the mussels being the house dish. The neighbors took the steak, it looked good, came with a salad and was enough for two people. The prices are really reasonable, 10 bucks for the mussels and 4 for an omelet. 14 for the steak. Okay that is about it for the good.
Now the bad and the sole reason I give this restaurant a 3. The service was horrible! Not a single person got their fries with their mussels not did everyone at the table get their food at the same time. And I am not talking about 1 or two minutes between dishes, people literally finished eating before others got what they ordered. That is saying a lot considering the French tend to let their food go cold before eating before the others. We had to remind the waitress to bring us our fries. Then after we ordered we were told they were out of eggs for our sons omelet. Well he was not going to eat Mussels so we were a bit annoyed. But hey wait a second, are we not in a market? It took me literally 1 and a half minutes to find the eggs (6), which I gave to the chef. No thank you, nothing. When the bill came we thought maybe we would have gotten a small discount on the omelet or an offered glass of wine, no instead we were charged for an orangina we did not take. I noticed the rest of our eggs were with the chef who either forgot to give them back or planned on using them (which was fine, but they could have at least been nice about it). I just told the waitress they could keep the eggs. No response. There were 12 tables and a bar. Even if completely full that is only 24 covers and maybe 10 at the bar. I have waitressed in this town making up to 100 covers alone a night. I feel I have the right to say the help here is not good and there was no real excuse for it. She was pretty though. In the end we were super disappointed.
