The staff are very friendly (my 11 year old daughter) Excellent food, massive portions, served by very friendly people. Well worth a visit. Our 3 kids (11,11,8) and ourselves loved it.

Awesome bistro food with incredible salads (get the warm goat cheese) and mains—biggest shrimp I’ve ever seen. Wait staff so friendly I felt I was in my own back yard eating with my family. Owner is the cook and we watched him from our table...next to the kitchen whipping up hid wonderful bistro fare. When we complimented him and told him we’re from Chicago, he comped us after dinner liquors. Such a nice overall experience and killer great food. Highly recommended!!!More

We visited for dinner with friends who had eaten here before. Welcome was very good and very accommodating. There is a 2 course 24 euro menu or you can chose from a small board of main courses. The portion sizes are massive as we ordered...a very large gésier, duck and goats cheese salad which was more than enough for 2 people but then again it was 21 euro. Deserts are very good, home made and again large portions. There is not an extensive drinks offering, beer wine and a few spirits. The waiting staff and very friendly and helpful. It was a good experience and I would definitely go backMore

Strange menu. There's the chalk board with the usual 'formule de midi' (starter: salade fraicheur, mains: salade +tart, fish + tabbouleh) and then another board for other salads. The latter,we were told, were giant and enough for two people. The salade fraicheur starter was a...meal on its own- lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber, plastic cheese and ham all tossed into a bowl and not well-seasoned. The fish main was pretty tasteless. The giant salads ordered were giant but effectively lots of lettuce with a goat's cheese toast on top, and the salade + tart main was the starter again plus a quiche. The service was okay. Outside seating was cramped and noisy. Pichet of wine was okay. So for two salads plus 2 starters+main, 50cl wine and 3 coffees we paid 60 euros.More

Other reviews took me and a friend here last week - it has an informal feel; not your quiet, romantic sort of place! The staff are very friendly and there is a decent choice of food and wine. The starters are fairly salad dominated ......but the salads are very good and ENORMOUS!! One between two will be fine ... trust me!! The main courses are all prepared on a grill so a variety of brochettas and the like ... but all very tasty. It's also very well situated - right in the middle of Carmes; which is a great place to find a bar and/or restaurant.More

Went there on a Sunday evening with 6 friends .We were made very welcome and shown to a table near the front window. Scallops decided to have the 20euro 2 course menu. Our waitress suggested we have 1 starter between 2 as they were so...large.Then share a pudding between 2. This was a good call. It was all good. We loved the wine and beer. We would go again.More
