Food was delish, service was wonderful. many choices, was hard to make a decision. I found only 2 minor drawbacks.....no credit cards and the acoustics made it very noisy. I will try this again, though. I thought the selections were very interesting!!!!

This restaurant looks the part but it does not deliver. Let's do the positives first. Great location, nice interior, nice back yard eating space. I had a great conversation with some other diners in the back space one night...that was the highlight of the visits...More

We had great crepe with interesting stuffing, like ratatouille, goat cheese etc., croque monsieur and all other traditional French dishes, served with well dressed lettuce and excellent coffee.
