After a long day of work, I finally arrived at my hotel and sat back in a chair in my room where I read reviews about this bistro. The intrigue of the "Chef's Special" lured me to this quaint spot. The "Chef's Special" is an...More

Small quaint spot near the fleuve offers modern takes on traditional French food. I had a boudin noir with a celeriac side that was very good. Also had a hummus/baba ganoush shared appetizer which was very well received by my elderly parents who'd never had...More
