We found this place by accident, but the staff were welcoming, they tried to speak with us in English which is rare for France. The food was super, and delivered rapidly. All in all, this was a pleasant surprise.

We booked at Le Bistrot on a recommendation and were not disappointed. The charming staff were maybe a bit over-stretched for the number of customers, but that was a minor glitch for a meal that was superb throughout.
