“a good surprise”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

Located in the center of Besancon, we had lunch outside =beautiful sunny day-but the interior is very nice and original.
The stuff is very gentle, helpful and very friendly with kids.
The menu offers a good selection of regional specialties served in generous portions. A very nice experience.

Nice little bistro with good service and amiable staff. The food was simple bistro quality, and portions were above average size.

“Simple food cooked well”
Reviewed November 8, 2008

The previous evening we had a bizarre eating experience in this town and were looking for a restaurant for a simple meal, cooked well and served in reasonably attractive surroundings. This little place on one of the pedestrianised streets looked inviting.

The decor was attractive without being particularly memorable. We felt we were in a French bistro, The staff were attentive and helpful. I ordered a creme cucumber salad which was well made and tasty, one of my favourite French starters when I want refreshment, while my husband had mushrooms with puff pastry fleurons which he also enjoyed. For the main course I ordered skirt steak, a flavoursome cut not often found in restaurants in Australia. It was cooked nicely rare as ordered. The significant other ordered chicken forestiere and the waitress did check that he realised he would be getting mushrooms twice. However he was content with his order.

For desert we had creme Catalan, much like creme brulee, nicely cooked and presented.

I guess after our experience the previous night we got exactly what we needed, good food with flavour, cooked well, served nicely and with a smile and no too expensive. Recommended.
