Their risotto tasted delicious. The white wine the waiter recommended was also nice. The two went very well together. The atmosphere is the strongest point of the restaurant. And they support it with their tasty food.

La Cigale has small taste of France. Everything was very correct. Food was very good, meat made as I demand, place is romantic with not disturbing music. Good selection of vine. Maybe a bit more expensive than in other similar restaurants, but not big difference....More
