It may not be the smartest restaurant nor have the greatest service, but the atmosphere is great, it's busy, vibrant ant the food is very good. Big portions, best chips ever, and the diet went out of the window.

not sure if this was typical of the restaurant but the evening that we went, there was only one main cook and that resulted in a very long wait for our food (almost 2 hours to be exact!) - everyone that evening had to wait!...More

Well appointed, tight tables, lots of interesting decor, great service, decent prices for French food which tends to be big on price and small on portions; this was neither. I decided to go because another trip advisor review gushed over the mussels. It must have...More
