Superb food with attentive service. Not many tables but both times we went we were able to get in. Chocolate fondant was a particular highlight

We love this little bistro. It is definitely a splurge. But, worth it. I had a delicious filet mignon. My daughter had an open face steak sandwich--both were delicious. It is small, so I suggest going early. I definitely recommend this place!

They serve some really good steak over here. The boeuf bourguignon is also very tasteful. It's ashame to see the lack of the English language of the crew, but thats just a small detail. Great place to go for some good food.
