This restaurant proposes traditional French food, with great wine. The food is excellent as the service. It is located close to the RER, and as limited competitors in the area where so many restaurant serve poor food. It is clean and home made.

This is a neighbourhood bistro, frequented by locals for a work lunch, and a few tourists given the Marriott nearby. It’s a bit scruffy in terms of decor, the bathroom door falling apart and the door frame mad straight by a wine cork! Besides that,...More
