My wife & I had dinner last night in this bistro. It is not a bistro, it's a top quality restaurant. Ordered the menu of the day; they know their classical dishes: bisque d'homard, filet de bar, dame blanche...all for 39eur Not expensive at all. Very professional, top service - felt very welcome Highly recommended! We'll visit them again soon.
