This is a a funky place. Crazy decor and a large menu and good food. We had confit de canard served in a crock with roasted potatoes and the portions were huge.

After many years of visiting France having accustomed to different cuisine, we were very disappointed with our entrecôte. Unseasoned and over cooked with no salt and pepper available. Overall an unremarkable meal and staff not interested in why our plates were unfinished.

We had a wonderful casual dinner at this restaurant. Great service from Victor. Just follow his recommendations. The chicken cassoulet with vinegar sauce was delicious. Vegetarian options were very good. Wine recommendation was right on! Our party of five were all very pleased

Triple fronted restaurant in an atmospheric side street off the main square. It could be so good and (reading other reviews) often is. However, I ordered duck but got beef and was charged for the duck. Why didn't I complain? By the time I realised...More
