“Slow but food okay”
Reviewed February 23, 2012

This is a VERY casual establishment, so allow plenty of time while the (admittedly friendly) staff get cranked up to the idea of working. Our food, a north African paella, was actually quite tasty and the portions generous. We were offered a free brandy at the end of the meal, though we hadn't made any complaint. Not the worst place to go if you want a taste of Algerian style cooking. However, there are better places around for similar money.

“Nice atomsphere, passable food”
Reviewed December 15, 2011

Had dinner in this restaurant while attending a conference. The main room of the restaurant has beautiful middle age archs with a touch of tacky decoration. The menu has a large variety of products and dishes and a nice range of menus. Service was moderately quick and food was average. Although they have the menu in English, it has been translated word by word, so makes absolute no sense to the reader (but, it is very funny to have a look!)

“Good food, good service but you eat indoors”
Reviewed July 23, 2009

We ate dinner here in June 2009. The only downside is that you are located indoors, however the inside of the building is quite interesting with a particularly interesting ceiling design.
The food was excellent. We had spicy sausages for entree then a local duck dish and a chicken dish (with Calvados cream sauce - and you could really taste the apple). All the food was very tasty. The service was excellent. The meal, including a bottle of local wine cost us about 44 euros.
The restaurant specialises in Normandie food but they do local specialities as well.
According to the business card, the restaurant is closed on Sundays.
