We were recommended this restaurant by our hotel and we were not disappointed. Despite not having a booking the staff were very welcoming and we were seated immediately. Given our very limited French the menu was explained in detail as were the "specials". The decor is quite traditional but it was spotlessly clean and the overall atmosphere was warm and cosy. The food was excellent, I had the special start with, mussels gratin and the sea bass, my wife had a salad and the lamb shank - all excellent!

Would happily recommend!

Tried to get to 'Entre de Verres' but were refused as chef had had an accident during the day.
The 'fish americain' was small but ok - served with a risotto which was a bit stogy and there was no vegetables or salad served with the entire meal )-;
The desert of choc fondant au coeur caramel was excellent.
Service was ok but a bit under staffed and slow.

We had a delicious dinner here sitting outside at one of the 4 tables on this quiet pedestrian street. The menu features a good selection of local produce so changes seasonally which is nice! We enjoyed the wait staffs recommendations of wine from the region as well which nicely complemented the fish we ordered. If you have room to have dessert, do so as it will be fantastic! We were glad of the short walk back to our hotel to get our digestion going!!! Would love to go back!
