“Great food and fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

Had dinner with three friends here on a Friday night and had a blast. Friendly service from a wonderful waitress who recommended a lovely wine. The food was excellent and the dessert divine. Fun bistro atmosphere!

“If you like Steak and old style ambiance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013 via mobile

Four of us eat here last night . The restaurant has great old French ambiance . The staff are very well trained and attentive . When I wasnt sure about a wine the waitress said she had some already open to try which is so useful . Needless to say we liked it and had the set menu with the Medallions of beef which were succulent and very tender . My wife had the steak Rossini and my daughter the filet de perches it was all excellent .The gratin is to die for ... The desserts are generous and delicious the cafe Bistrot was my choice ! Would definitely go again but it's popular so you need to book !

“Remarkably good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

Based on its Tripadvisor ratings I decided to have dinner at this place. Have to say every bit of what others write is an understatement. The waiters are very friendly and the food is remarkably good. I especially liked it because the food looks fairly normal, is a decently filled plate thus the taste of the food is even more surprising. No extremely nicely decoraded plates with pretty much nothing on it, just normal decoration and very fine tasting food. Perfect!

They also offer free WIFI. Nice to kill time browsing the web if you're dining alone. Ask the waiter for the password.

“Fabulous!”

Brilliant food and wonderful, attentive staff. It is a very busy restaurant so booking is advisable.
I had the tenderloin steak which was cooked to perfection. Loved it.

“Outstanding!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

Amazing restaurant if you are seeking for a good place for dinner. Food is typical, home made and French (from Lyon). The restaurant is beautiful and the personnel very sympathic, they definitely contribute to the overall experience and ensure that you spent a good evening. Highly recommended restaurant for special occasions.
