“Its a blessing for everyone”
Reviewed November 14, 2013

This is a social place, people work here for re-insertion.

That said, they have a varied menu and days dishes. There is always something to eat whatever your appetite calls for.

Drinks are a little more restricted ... no alcohol.

Summer opens the terrace which overhangs an old church so you are actually out of car traffic.

“Something for everyone.....”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

Went to have lunch here.The menu is very complete.Pizzas,Spaghettis,Omelettes plus more sophisticated dishes.We went for the fish.The perches were very good as was my filet de loup.Served with a crispy julienne de legumes.
The desserts are home made.This is a good choice for simple wellcooked food at ok prices.

“Don`t go at lunchtime”
Reviewed June 28, 2010

Maybe we were unlucky, but we had a very surly waitress who was stressed out, and when we asked for a translation of the menu was unable to help and we felt a nuisance. The meal was a bit hit or miss as I had no idea what I was orderering. Turned out to be fried prawns with a sweet and sour sauce which was fine. The majority of restaurants we tried were short staffed and we often had to wait a long time to be served.

“Wonderful meal and location”
Reviewed September 21, 2009

Just on the edge of the old city is this great restaurant. It's set against the old city wall beside the Eglise de la Madeleine. My husband loved the perch fillets and I had a wonderful warm goat cheese salad! We ate on the "porch" so watched the people walking by from about a story up! It's a charming, lovely spot for lunch or dinner! No alcohol but a charming atmosphere.
