“Simple but tasty Creole food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

Decent food, an alternative to the heavy offal based dishes offered by (the good) Bouchons of Lyon. The restaurant is smart and clean, just off the main square of Vieux. The food is simple, but tasty and spicy (not overly). The young waitress that served us spoke good English and explained all the dishes and which dip/sauce should be paired. I would recommend the taster menu (27 Euros, I think) which allows one to try a little of everything, be warned the portions are very generous. The house wines by the pot are good and reasonably priced for a tourist area. Worth a visit for a taste of French colonial food.
