“Ticked all the boxes!”
Reviewed July 16, 2012

Had dinner here wifth a friend June 25th. Lovely part of town (old and not rebuilt after bombing) lovely tables outside, modern, romantic and chic interior, delicious food, courteous and efficient service, great wine list, great atmosphere and clientele. Definitely a neighborhood restaurant (no English menus) and off the beaten track. The concierge at the Excelsior hotel recommended brilliantly.

“Cosy atmosphere - better for a romantic than a business dinner”
Reviewed October 17, 2011

Great restaurant, very nice food and good menues with failry limited choices, which I consider positive. Vegetarian choices could be better though.

Very friendly and efficient service.

The Brasserie has also a Michelin-Star rated 'sister'-restaurant with just four tables - that kind of rating for the chefs speaks its own language.

Very recommendable for a romantic dinner.

Make sure to ask for a table to the left of the entrance.

“Great food, professional kitchen, friendly staff”
Reviewed October 12, 2011

Being there on an extremely busy night ( one table of 24, another of 8 ), our small table was served with great care and on time with an excellent "menu gastronomique" at the best French standards. Bouillabaisse better than most in France, an apricot and sun-dried tomato pesto to die for, duck cooked to perfection with the creamiest sweet potato ever. Wine list is very well constructed with all items on the spot at reasonable prices. The young staff is friendly and fast, if not very experienced, but that adds to the charm and personality of Capricorn(i)Aries. Would love to try out their cooking classes!
