“reasonable restaurant, good service”
Reviewed September 4, 2009

Good place for lunch where a fixed price $7.95 (September 2009) gets you a couple of choices including soup or salad. We had a nice beef broth soup loaded will well cooked vegetables and a large salad with grated cheese on top. Also included was coffee or tea. Outside seating was pleasant. This was good enough to prompt us to return for dinner.

Dinner seating is outside (smoking allowed), inside in a casual atmosphere, or inside in a more formal area. We picked the inside casual. Friends joined us. Complete dinners with first course, second course, soup or salad, and coffee or tea were in the range $20 - $26. Al a carte was also available from another menu. Wine selection is limited from the main menu, but there is a small stash of additional wines available. Selections in the complete dinner menu included roughly six first courses, and six second courses. The soup was the same as at lunch and the salad was smaller (as might be expected). Marinated salmon in the first course was good as was a cheese filled pastry. Confeit Duck with orange was overdone, rather dry and not as tasty as expected. Beef Stroganof was good. Pink trout was a bit dry. Pepper steak was tasty and done as ordered.

The service was very good, with the waiter clearly concerned that people were enjoying dinner. A shift in the wine for the second bottle (there were eight people) brought new glasses and insistence that we use those new glasses. Service at lunch was also very good and friendly. English is spoken, with no hint that one should be conversing in French.

All in all an acceptable place to eat. The limited wine menu (with some listed wines not available) limits the score for the review. Not the best we found in the area, but quite acceptable. We would return if again in the area for several days.

“Good French food at reasonable prices”
Reviewed February 21, 2009

I have eaten at this restaurant on 3 different trips to Sutton, and each time had a good experience. The place looks a little odd, but is definitely worth a try. It's one of the few places in town open every day. The escargot is delicious. You won't be disappointed.
