This is a shady courtyard at the back of a retaurant which appears tiny at first look. The menu was OK and the food was very good. Quirky surroundings.

As you know, I am impatient. We were attracted to this tiny restaurant by the glimpse of shady courtyard viewed from the doorway. It looked interesting. There was the usual agglomeration of miscellaneous objects with no particular connection or relevance eg pressure cookers, plastic shopping bags and stuffed dogs. You can only wonder why? We were seated quickly, though it... More

The only reason that we went into this restaurant was because they had a picture of the garden displayed at the front. The tables just inside the door are not inviting at all, but if you walk through to the back, you then find yourself in a shaded, very quirky little garden area. We went there for lunch and dinner...

The menu is not large but it has something for everyone unless you want fish. We had a salad with the local fresh cheese made from ewe's milk, rabbit with olives in a sauce with pasta, chicken tagine, ravioli with veal stew. All very tasty and generous portions. We also shared a platter of charcuterie as a starter. We had... More

We went last night early as we thought with a very small frontage it may be small inside but it goes back a long way. We arrived at 7.10pm to find the entry barred by a chair with a sign saying open at 7pm! We did get in however and it was well worth it. My wife chose salad Francesca... More

We were anxious to try this restaurant from the reviews we had read, and were grateful to the maitre'd for finding us a table for two on a busy night. The courtyard garden was a lovely space, full of atmosphere and with plenty of talking points on the walls! The portions were very generous, and the food was tasty and... More

We found this place full up in the evening so decided to book for the next day. We heard a lot of good things about it and as it was so busy, expected a real treat. It's very cosy and quirky inside the courtyard with many people bringing their dogs and kids. It felt very family and communal. The service... More

Charming courtyard garden and very good food, but we found the seating area to be absolutely stiflingly hot on the evening we visited: maybe go on a cooler night next time

Quirky courtyard full of a strange mixture of objects, this place was recommended to us. However my husbands escalope of veal was clearly burnt, admittedly he didn't complain but sad to think they thought it was acceptable. My veal in a sauce was ok.
