If you can overlook the unfortunate interior design choices (overly bright LED lighting and a tragic palate of purples) in this otherwise pleasant and uncrowded neighborhood place, you can enjoy some very smart dishes, with good service, and leave with more Euros in your pocket than usual.
To start, a serving of cold terrine of foie gras atop a tiny layer of rillettes and a touch of quince paste was outstanding and a stack of thin, coaster-sized "pancakes" with gravlax salmon was perky with the small smear of wasabi infused vinegtette. We both had the duck pot au feu as an antidote to the cold wet night, and were glad we didn't have to share; tender, deeply flavored duck falling off the bone, a medley of winter vegetables, all in a succulent broth. The piece of duck liver dropped in at the last moment, and barely poached by the time it hit the palate was a delightful surprise. Desserts were the weak link; the menu prose exceeded the actual dishes. Sautéed mango in a crisp was okay, but the caramel tart was merely a thick pencil of puff pastry and a spoon full of vanilla pastry cream on the side.
Service is friendly and competent, and an English menu is available. Wine list is modest, but well priced, and both glasses and half bottles (at a very small premium) are available for many of the offerings.
Pricing is shockingly good. Starters are all 9 €, mains 19€, and dessert 8€, but all three courses can be had for 30€. There were about six choices in each course.
