Very pleasant, almost endearing place, with charming staff who - dare I say - are slightly more mature than young but who deliver friendliness and good service and add to a sense of being someone slightly different. Like someone's home, extended backwards? The food was good, without being exceptional and again had a sense of very fine home cooking: a good pumpkin veloute generously dosed with pied-de-mouton mushrooms, a nicely cooked piece of turbot, fresh of the boat (but served with some rather wholesome winter vegetables that are very much of the region but which didn't do it any favours). Small choice of good wines. Three good cheeses. Eighty euros for two, including both a bottle of wine and of water. All in all, somewhere we would go back to. Fun.

We had an excellent lunch here. The menu is reassuringly small and it's well patronised by local people. The food was tasty, well presented and reasonably priced. Wine by the pichet was excellent value and the friendly staff could not do enough to make sure we enjoyed our stay.

A family owned brasserie offering a daily fixed price menu often seafood changing daily.A la carte on Sundays which you need to book.Excellent service, good value wine list which is not overpriced and most of all great food taking into account that the daily menu is very reasonable.No fancy table cloths or napkins but who cares for food at this price.Great atmosphere when busy but can be quiet mid week in the winter.Give it a go you will not be disappointed.

Slightly overrated, if you ask me. I had a local speciality ('fish in a bowl') but I must say it wasn't that special, nor was is plenty. The same goes for the dessert, of which the flavors did not match. They try haute cuisine, but fail short. The local black beer is worth to try, though. The atmosphere was indeed welcoming, it's light, but actually all to neat. The seating has nothing to do with the Parisian bistro - it's just small tables, without a cushion seating, back to the wall.
