Not to be mistaken for a restaurant or a brasserie! Instead, we are a cosy little bistrot (max. 25 seats) ! Enjoy simple bistrot fare freshly prepared on a daily basis, alongside quality niche wines sourced by Gerald from local producers and across France. Available for private wine tasting events. Small & large group bookings and private hire.
