“Good food, shame about the service!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2012

A charming restaurant which was recommended by our hotel. The food was very good but as the restaurant filled the service became very slow because of lack of staff. However the staff were friendly and helpful.

Reasonable meal. Terrible service, very slow, mixed our desserts up with another customers and made no effort to rectify.

“One of the best - no question”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2010

This restaurant is handily situated in the centre of town, near the Basilique de Notre Dame. The two owners prepare and serve the food and it is absolutely superb - very high on our list of recommendations. Service can be slow when it's very busy - which it is most lunchtimes and evenings, so get there early if you are in a hurry with no time to waste. Best to reserve in advance, though worth taking a chance if you haven't and calling in on spec - you could be lucky. The desserts are heavenly but it's hard to pick out any individual dish as I've tried a lot and all are surpassingly well made. General style is traditional Grench dishes with a touch of nouvelle cuisine and novelty in the presentation.
