Lamb cutlets are great, but if you don't like fat, avoid them. Also the steak tartare looked wonderful.

Tried the platter - charcuterie y fromages. Fantastic and great size for 2 (probably better for 3)! Wish there was a non-smoking section outside as the amount of chai smokers is disgusting so we sat inside (but hey that's France for you!)

We were a big group but that did not excuse the clumsy service and confused orders. It seemed the staff were unsure of themselves and I spent the evening dodging falling glasses and noisy staff. Quite unpleasant really. The food was not great

Went there for a light dinner and beer. Well prepared and pleasantly served. Good for snacks as well as full meal. Very convenient too.

Good french cousine. Good service. English speaking waiters. Clear menu. Took average onion soup and above average flank steak - could recommend. If you would like to have some french food: good choice.
