“Delicious Food - Spotty Service”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

This cozy restaurant serves a wide range of authentic French bistro dishes. Our assigned server seemed distracted, taking 15 minutes to bring a wine menu 3 steps. Fortunately, she was replaced by an energetic waitress who was friendly and efficient. I chose the asparagus and brie quiche which I found to be delicious albeit a little drowned in a tasty, but excessive caramelized sauce. My main course was a steak au poivre, which was done to rare perfection, and was covered by the perfect portion of the classic sauce. My wife thought found both her appetizer of brandade and her main fish plate to be delightful. The tarte tatins that we chose for dessert were very good. A fairly priced bistro meal, but not inexpensive.

“One of the best restaurants”
Reviewed May 29, 2010

The owners Pascale and Lionel are truly nice persons. The martinis, delicious, needless to say the food is excellent. The price quite affordable and its near metro station. Better to make reservations on week-end. During summer they have a small terrace with flowers. The clientele mostly adults and a friendly ambiance. You will want to go back again.
