A real little treasure in Belleville. Tapas style food. Really tasty and imaginative. Great service. I was disappointed with my wine but maybe got unlucky in my choice.

The reviews of this place were top so we walked across the city to be first when they open. To our surprise the place is tiny, maybe 20-30 guests, and was fully booked. I don't blame them for being booked all time, but they should...More
