Hi, CatMamma, Thank you for your review! You are right: we're indeed amongst the oldest french restaurants in town - always in the same address and being runned by the same family that inaugurated it.

was once a fancy residential area. República Square
holds a craft and food fair every weekend, right by

apartments and a huge floor area that inspired
