From the moment we arrived at the restaurant, the host made us feel very welcome. He helped me with my awkward French, and aided us through the choices for dinner. We found an excellent Chateauneuf du Pape at a very reasonable price. We had scallops (Coquilles St. Jacques) and tuna tartare, duck breast stuffed with foie gras, and tournedos Rossini (yes the Italian composer's addition to French cuisine) cooked to perfection. We were neither rushed nor delayed with dinner. All in all, it was a very lovely time.

It's a privilege to contribute the first English review of this very excellent restaurant. It's on a quiet unprepossessing street near Ave Jean Jaurès (where several good restaurants are located). When you ring the bell you are admitted to a different world: a handsome, creatively designed, not too large room. The food in the style of Southwest France is also very creative but not "over the top". We started with the Tartare de Thon and the Salade berger. Both were best of their class. Main couses were Tartare de Canard (very, very special!) and the Risotto with morels and foie gras (also superb). And dessert of fondant au chocolate. Service is very skilled. The maitre'de is charming. This was our favorite of the four restaurants we enjoyed in Nîmes and we recommend it highly! FYI English is not a problem.
