Mussels to start were so tender and had great flavor, steak frites was unbelievable with truffle flavor in the sauce and the cod dish special was very tasty as well. Wine list made me happy!

I took a group of eight, clients and their spouses. Everyone was wowed, and the bill came in at less than $100 per head, including dessert, cocktails, and wine.

The mussels sancerre are amazing - save room to soak up the sauce with creme fraiche and rosemary. My mouth waters when I think about it. I had had the mussels here several years ago, and I'm delighted they are still as good.

What I did not expect was the lemon sole meunière - it was a pan-fried, lightly fish-flavored cloud - really more like a dessert than an entree.

I love this place and would have eaten here every night during my trip if I could.
