The food was okay, nothing spectacular and you could taste that it was not very fresh. The waiter also had difficulty with my boyfriends nut allergy... Fortunately it all went well but if you have a severe allergy I do not suggest you go there.

Although it is a very pleasant and unique experience to eat in small glasses, I was still a little bit hungry after I Ieft. To have my stomach satisfied, I should have paid around 30 euros for 12 or 13 verrines + a glass of wine. The place itself is quite small and doesn't have the comfortable feeling you might... More

An excellent choice for the restaurant avec verrines. All the tasty recipes were served in small glaces (2,20 euros per glass or 18 per person - desserts are included). The menu was also for vegetarians like myself and my personal favorite"Tapioca" (special pasta). The restaurant was easy to find just opposite to Corum and 5min walk from the central square... More

Playfood plays in the stomach groove, offering a unique combination of tastes packed in the verres classiques. My personal favourites dishes (and highly recommended) was a mix of potatoes and bacon with a (French sauce, if I got it correctly), a magnificent blend of goat cheese and radishes, and the all time classic mousse chocolate.. The menu is even more... More

This place is great. The guy was really friendly and helpful and spoke English really well describing all the dishes to us. Though the food can be just as expensive as most other places around France for what you get as you need a few to really fill up this place was a welcome change for a vegetarian in France.... More

Quirky, inventive, fun but the taste still needs to be there as well as texture to really be complete for my liking. Nice food but not mind blowing. Good for a lunch maybe.

Discovering somewhere that offered a range of vegetarian options was a minor miracle. Finding that they were tapas style but presented in large shot glasses was great! I liked all (10?) savoury options including the two fish options and all the 5(!!) deserts. Ange not sure about Roquefort option -but no great shock there! Local red wine smooth. And all... More

Small and intimate place with great service. Dishes are served in small glasses, which means you can taste about 8-10 as part of your meal. About 2Euros per glass. Most were really nice. Highly recommended
