Staff here were really friendly towards us. This is a traditional restaurant- nothing fancy just simple, tasty food, cooked well. The tarte tatin was gorgeous, as was the chocolate macaroon. The entrecote steak was also good. Definitely value for money- 3 courses for 3 people plus bottle of wine, water and a soft drink just over 70 euros. Knowledge of... More

We have 3 children ages 4,6 and 8. We wanted to eat out in a French restaurant and find a child friendly place where we felt comfortable. The food was great, good value and the kids loved it. Lots of French people eating there so a good sign.
