It is a small and famous place, visited by great personalities that have photos on the wall! The fries are delicious and they recommend a creamy dressing that goes very well, I could not avoid eating two although the portion is good

Sorry I am so late to reply but I’m not well versed in nut allergies. I would ask the staff at the restaurant. Several of them speak fluent English.
