What an experience! Spent a couple of hours here going back and forth to various food stalls. My favourite were the grilled gambas and grilled Camembert from La Roti Sète. Yes it is busy but be patient and a table will become available.

L'ambiance est agréable cependant la qualité du service déçoit. La serveuse et les autres employés se sont moqués de moi et ma famille, ils nous regardaient et riaient au même temps. Ils sont jamais dit merci ou créée une ambiance de convivialité. Moi je dirais,...More
