“Stop talking about your family!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

The owner has a kick out of talking to guests while they are trying to enjoy dinner. Food mediocre. One man show, so patience is needed. Patrons with very young baby's makes you wonder whether it's a nursery or a restaurant (for dinner). Nope, not again.

“Excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2012

Wonderful food, very tasty. French chef, veg from Luigi's allotment. Decor is like someone's Grandma's house, but the food makes up for it. If it was modernised and in a busier location there would be a 3 month waiting list for a table as the food is gorgeous, just like the food served in a wonderful restaurant in Italy or France. Not cheap but worth it, highly recommended.

“Really French ?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2012

The food is quite good, but is it really french ? The maître d'hôtel is perfect in his very personnal style. A funny evening to spend (however they should change the music) in a "rustique" restaurant.
