This bistro was just amazing. Variation day to day in the menu. Short but good variation. Super friendly with all ages in a very natural way. I like to back soon again!

Dear Saif, I'm sorry that you felt unwelcome at our place. You have to know that many people go through the garden, or just join tables, and it is possible to see people passing who sometimes were already there before you. Know that we note...More

Le Bistrot des Dames prepare une cuisine entierement maison, a base de produits de saison, dans un style Bistrot terroir, avec quelques accents espagnols et asiatiques. Les jours de beau temps, il est possible de diner dans le jardin interieur sur des petites tables (1 a 4 personnes) mais il est conseille de venir des l'ouverture car il n'y a que 50 places dans le jardin. Le soir, le jardin ne fait pas cafe mais uniquement restaurant, les tables etant reservees aux personnes souhaitant diner. Mais il est bien sur possible de prendre un verre au bar ou dans les salles, qui sont ouvertes jusqu'a 2h du matin.
