A surprisingly tasty and well cooked meal from a tiny kitchen out back. Check out any steak specials as ours was perfectly cooked and tender as can be. A well priced cote de gasgoine was enjoyed by all.

I only dropped by for a coffee and was not pleased. Despite possesing decent equipment - My double espresso tasted horrible and was done totally wrong (no tamping, easy too long). Would not recommend as a place to get coffee

Great atmosphere and lovely food. We had a large dinner party in the upstairs room and all of the food from the starters to the desert was delicious.

Popped in a few times for drinks. Fun little boho place with a nice wine list and good beers. Asked for a Moresco, and although the staff didn't know what it was,they swiftly made it for me ! Great atmosphere and drinks!

I wanted to revisit Au Vieux de la Vieille but couldn't book a table on that night, so we opted for Le Porthos, which looked quite similar. The place is quite tiny, I think it's better to come early if you don't want to be...More
