“Terrible service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2012

After a long day we went to this restaurant based on the reviews on this site. The place was not fully booked and we were almost sitting on the chair, however when we asked for the English menu or a translation of some words from french to english the owner/manager just shouted to us " When I have time" following some french rude words. We just walk away and went to petite idee where the story was completely the opposite. The waiter of pettite idee just gave us the english menu ( without asking), helped us to select some french cusine and which was overall simply fantastic.

“Turned away”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2012

We were group of three and wanted nice meals at the end of a long day. We wanted to try this place based on reviews from here, but we were turned away not because the place was booked out but we were THREE! One of us spoke French and she tried to reason with the owner/manager, but he practically kicked us out. We thought it plain ridiculous and the manager very rude.

“Great location, atmosphere, and food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2012

We're on our first trip to France/Switzerland and we've been using tripadvisor for all our eating recommendations. We tried this place and it was fantastic! The atmosphere has you feeling like you are in someone's home eating, with the kitchen being relatively open to the small dining area. The menu is written on a blackboard in french (which we don't speak) but the waiter was very helpful when we attempted to speak french. The portions are very generous, wine was delicious, and prices were VERY good for the quality we got. I will be going back here again tonight!

“Good food, nice environment, great value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2012

This little gem really was a good find.

The menu is interesting and the food well cooked and tasty.

Nice cafe style ambiance and affordable prices make this top of my list for a quick supper in Grenoble.

Best to book at popular times as I was lucky to grab the last table when I arrived at 20:00, midweek,
