We ate at this restaurant at lunchtime on a Saturday. The service is friendly and efficient. There is a good selection of menus at different prices and a great wine list. They offer a selection of amuse bouches which make the dining experience very pleasurable. We were four and were seated at a round table which give us ample space.... More

Ingredients used are of good quality, as well as some dishes. All bread is homemade and delicious. However, in general the dishes lack creatity, originality. As main dish of the menu, for which you had to pay 6€extra, I had beef Lorraine. It came with green pepper sauce and penne with cheese (!!!!!!). Dessert, pistache souflé, I didn't like either,...

Recommended to this restaurant by the clerk in our hotel, we were expecting a quiet place and were pleasantly surprised by the excellent food. Several levels of prix fixe menus (€28, 40, 50, with a €10 cheese plate option) with many different food choices made it hard to choose. We took the middle route, lobster for me and monkfish for...

Well prepared food, excellent service for two Australian travelers who tried to speak French. We each selected different courses & collectively our meals were very well prepared (foie gras, sea bass, beef dish, sorbets, cheese platter. We were able to take our time over dinner, yet get our bill when it was time to go and see the light-and-sound show... More

This is a great wee street with bars and restaurants. We chose this one and were very happy with our choice. It was lovely to eat outside and there was a great atmosphere, it was a warm and balmy evening. The food was well presented, perhaps a bit fussy in it's presentation but was good and as other reviewers state... More

We ate there on a Wednesday evening. We took the cheapest menu, €28 for 3 courses, as we didn't want cheese. The sardine millefeuille was voted a hit by Himself, as was my oeuf Russe with crab. We chose the same main, lamb mini-skewers with a raita and vegetables cooked in a garam masala sauce. It was all delicious, the... More

This restaurant is one of the best in the city. Be certain to ask for a table upstairs, which is much quieter, not crowded at all, and cooler in temperature than downstairs. The service is impeccable. The food is outstanding. The lobster salad was spectacular! The wines are very reasonably priced.

I was looking forward to a good meal but the evening went way beyond our expectations. The restaurant is tucked away on a lively street and it would be easy to miss it. From the moment we were greeted by our friendly waiter we had a fabulous time. We started with two amuse bouches - a fish pate and an... More

Lovely small restaurant with excellent value menus, great wines and highly attentive service. All the dishes were delicious and beautifully presented but the amazing date souffle was the highlight. Will definitely return. Highly recommend!
