“Great wine list and wonderfully wine-friendly food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2011

The blackboard menu is short and everything sounded enticingly wine-friendly. Our salmon tartare was beautifully balanced, very fresh and nicely dressed with chives. Our entrecotes were perfectly cooked, well seasoned, served with a delicious reduction sauce, a simple salad and fried potatoes (duck fat I think, or goose fat) and perfectly matched with the mid-priced Languedoc that we chose with advice from the sommelier.

The wine list is extensive, with a wide price range. I think our sommelier was the proprietor, she was knowledgeable and spoke good English.

“Great value, great meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2011

This restaurant is in the Michelin Guide as a good value place, but was not previously on Trip Advisor. We tried it as it was not far from our hotel near the Metz railway station. We had an excellent meal - all our courses were good, especially the help yourself cheese selection. There was a huge choice of wines at varying prices, and friendly, efficient service from a charming waitress with excellent English. We had a very enjoyable meal here.
