Baked eggs with foie gras, snails with cream, grilled whole fish... unpretentious, wholesomely yummy. Much better than the other higher rating place!

We had a simple and yet excellent dinner here. The food was fresh, prepared perfectly. Each bite was a treat. Our server was sweet and very accomodating, speaking French slowly for me (although she spoke perfect English) so that I could practice my French. We had a most delightful evening! I highly recommend it.

The staff were friendly, helpful, efficient and spoke excellent English - which gave a lovely atmosphere and experience. The menu gave a good variety of traditional French food,... More

Had dinner here. Very nice and reasonable price. As you have two separate outdoor patios it would be cool if one could be non-smoking!

We booked ahead for a Saturday night and we're glad we did. A cold April evening and they were turning them away. The food was tasty and the staff were excellent .

We read about the LPA at Trip Advisor, and decided to drop-in for a dinner. We arrived as they opened, which were smart as they're really popular (I recommend booking a table). The service were great, they welcomed us, had no problems with our very poor french, and swapped for English with ease. I opted for the egg and foie... More
