Nice ambience, feel so relaxed. Very delicious food ! Highly recommend for their fresh raw oysters and raw clams and they buttery bone marrow ! Very friendly team with quality service, you don't even need to ask for water refills / plate changing. Everything's just awesome! Will definitely come again!

Excellent quality food and service, you will not be disappointed. Great selection of wines which my partner appreciated (being French and vegetarian) some would say hard to please but it was a fantastic evening.
