Description: Our small family run restaurant welcomes you in cozy and warm ambiance. You find yourselves taken back to La Belle Époque... Come and taste traditional French home cooked food. Our small but well thought menu will satisfy from young to old! Not hungry? Have a pint of local award winning beer or a glass of French wine. Take yourself back to your childhood while eating our homemade ice cream and sorbet!

We went at lunch one day, since my husband is english he tries to speak French but does have a heaavy accent and then service folks assume we are tourists which is fine but when I spoke fluent French and asked if the daily special included other optioins then what was already posted the waitress snarkely went to the board showed me the options then walked away frustrated. Ok bad first impression but she never came back and another server helped us who was helpful however there was a patron who was sort of kicked out with a quarter of his wine carafe still full so that the owner could seat a 4some... Not sure what was going on there but from the perspective of the other diner's he wasn't paying his bill quick enough for her liking. Another bad impression... I ordered the salmon appetizer plate which was good and my husband ordered the daily special of Mustard rabbit and he enjoyed it.
The menu is limited and prices are not very good, I can usually find something to eat but I was grasping at straws at this menu...
Recently the ownership has changed and so I think it would make sense for them to be nicer to patrons even if they are tourists even though WE ARE NOT. This restaurant is located on a busy street surrounded by many other restaurants, offering similar if not better options, i'm hoping they read this and take this into consideration...

The first thing I noticed when we walked in was the waiter looking At his watch! It was only 1345, so not the late to warrant that.
From then the waiting staff were a little gruff, like we were waist info there time.
Good selection of food on the menu, the quality was good but nothing outstanding. And no outside seating available even though there were other bars and restaurants with seats out along the same section of the street.
Value for money? The prices were OK, just the attitude destroyed what could have been a pleasant dining experience!

We dined here one evening in July 2013. This restaurant is at the lower end of the main shopping street, by a roundabout. From the moment we arrived, our experience was totally positive. Great staff, great attitude, great food. A delight, and at a reasonable price.

Price wasn't too expensive.
Food and service was good. The waiters were friendly (which was a pleasant surprise)!
It's located on a main street with lots of shops.
I would generally recommend this restaurant.
