Really pleasant and cosy classical French bistro near the marché des Capucins. The food was simple and really fresh, good quality meat and a large menu. Great beers and good wine. Definitely coming back.

Very nice place to share a good moment with friends. No thrills, no fancy fusion dishes but solid local food with good size portions. Efficient and friendly service complete the picture. Recommended!

Family run restaurant. Apparently well-known for its meat dishes. We really enjoyed it. Good food and atmosphere at a very reasonable price.
