We had dinner here in a Monday evening with our daughters. The restaurant has a bistro atmosphere which is very pleasant. The food is very good - solid and simple. The tartare Thai and the Cochon de lait were perfect. Desserts also good and a very nice selection of wine, also by the glass. The service was very attentive and... More

We went here for a romantic dinner on a Saturday evening. The service and food were impeccable, we were really made to feel welcome and the staff spoke excellent English. There seemed to be a lot of regulars dining there, and the atmosphere was very warm. You need to book a table in advance. Warmly recommended!

On each visit I have to go for lunch or dinner. We have the sea and so neither fresh seafood. Here and in all restaurants of this chain is all fresh. I recommend the blue cheese, curry or Provencal sauce. The advantage is that the offer is for those seafood and fish do not like.

Not only was the food delicious but the service was beyond amazing! The owners/servers are so accommodating and helpful. Really made us feel comfortable so far away from home. A thousand times better than any service we've ever received at home.

We visited here on the last night of our city break. Located just round the corner from our hotel it was the perfect venue after a long day of sightseeing and doing the touristy thing. Without a reservation we were not sure if we would secure a table but luckily we got the last available one situated upstairs in what... More

I had the fixed price lunch menu which included a delicious and generous steak tartare. My companion went a la carte and his steak was splendid. Reasonable prices, friendly and attentive service and very good lunchtime ambience.

Went here last weekend for dinner. Foie gras as a starter was great, so was the boudin noir. Cheeses as desert were superb.

Luckily we picked this restaurant out of a number of restaurants on the street. They added a couple tables to the sidewalk because we wanted to enjoy the weather. The food is French with a twist. I had the Steak Tartare with a Thai twist and it was excellent! The service was very friendly. Can't wait to get back to... More
