Met friends for breakfast and had great Crepes and food. Small restaurant that fills up quick and usually has a short wait. Great for small groups. Breakfast is very good

Visited after a recommendation and reading some pretty good reviews. When I first arrived, I was seated at the bar (other person hadn't arrived) which was not a problem but because the place is so small, the chairs are "locked" at the bar so you...More

A small place off the beaten track, this is a quiet restaurant offering a smashing together of French and local cuisine styles. The galletes are perhaps a tad soggy - not entirely sure if they are made on the establishment - and suffer from a...More
