Ate inside in this quaint restaurant. Had an outstanding meal. I had the risotto, which was the best I have ever had. My wife had the rack of lamb which was also very good. Our friends had the tagliatelle with shrimp which was excellent as well. They have full plates as well as half servings. The guys opted for full plates, the wives for half. That was really perfect.
Service was good, our waitress spoke English and was able to assist my lactose-intolerant spouse. Prices were reasonable for the quality.

Came on a recommendation and enjoyed a sit in the sun for lunch after exploring the Gothic Quarter. Booking was required. We went for the set menu, which was around €10 each for three courses and a glass wine (although it turned out coffee wasn't included, which we had misunderstood - an inexpensive mistake on our part). Food and service was fine and overall it was good value.

Beautiful and mouthwatering. Take guidance from staff regarding plate/portion sizes relevant to each dish. My 1/2 portion scallop dish had just the 2 so I was glad of the complimentary bread.
This shouldn’t be considered as a quick fix tapas - it’s a whole different level of flavours and dining. Just divine
Beautiful, quiet square adjacent to Basillica de Sant Just st crowned the overall experience
