If you know bistro food and like it - you will find it here.

Your hosts - Bernard and Manon - the chef and maitre d'/waitress respectively make every visit a pleasure. As a bonus, I get to practice my French., Not to worry, their English is also excellent.

A nice place for lunch and also for a romantic dinner.

I must confess that I always order the Pate Maison which is a terrine made with pork and spices. It is a country version, of course, and when eaten with french bread, a good salad and a small carafe of wine - an excellent lunch!

For dinner they serve the usual bistro fare of steak au poivre, salmon, a pasta and something from the sea, such as mussels.

Last but not least, a seat by the window lets you watch the people and the traffic go by on Brock Street.

The food, the service, the atmosphere... everything is great!
Despite living in the area for over ten years, we hadn't visited Nice until last autumn. It has quickly become one of our favourite restaurants for romantic meals and for family gatherings.

My wife and I stayed in Whitby for a couple of nights to attend an event in Toronto and were pleasantly surprised to discover this gem of a restaurant in Whitby! The building, decor and atmosphere really did evoke that of a small French bistro and the food did not disappoint. The posted menu seemed limited, but we soon discovered that the chef includes a number of daily offerings, so there is considerable choice. We both ordered a pasta dish that included artichokes, zucchini, eggplant and thinly sliced beef (wonderfully marinated), with a rich, flavourful sauce. The dish was $18. Wine prices were also reasonable. The house wine (red or white) was French and priced at $26 for 750 ml. We selected an Australian chardonnay priced at $30. They had an extensive wine list, with price options in all ranges. The staff was very pleasant and engaging and the service was excellent. I would ignore some of the reviews of this restaurant that complained about the service, quantity of food or decor (One reviewer commented on how they were going to Macdonalds afterwards to fill up...'nuff saidl). Coming from Ottawa, where small bistro often means little food and much expense, finding this wonderful spot in Whitby was a real delight!
