We had a wonderful night out at this lovely cafe last week. Food was fabulous and I enjoyed overlooking the kitchen and watching as the desserts were prepared. We chose the 3 course menu for a set price and we were not disappointed. The waiter was extremely helpful as we needed a little assistance with the French menu. On both... More

Great atmosphere inside and out. It gets a Michelin bib gourmand for good reason. The food is full of flavor and creative. The wine list is a little punchy, and service could be a little more timely.

It is a quite enjoyable surrouding with a a very affordable menue with different option if you wish to have an appetizer with a dessert or a main course... More

Three of us (30 somethings) went to dinner here and the food was very good, but not great. We had to wait for so long, we didn't have time to get dessert and waited another 30 minutes for the check. We expected more - splurge and go to Clos des Sens instead.

Went there for lunch with my family. They have the trational French "formula" system where you can choose amongst entry, main dish and dessert. You can get any combination (e.g. entry + main dish or main dish + dessert only). The options for main dish were 2 porc, 2 fishes and 1 vegetarian. No chicken or meat or veal... It... More

This place definitely deserves the Bib Gourmand as it consistently serves excellent meals at a very reasonable price. The menu is short but varied, with the starters being perhaps a little unexciting. The merlu main was rather small but excellent all the same. The cote de porc (for 2) cooked at low temperature was awesome and huge, totally delicious. Desserts... More

I recommend this restaurant if you are in the mood for well-prepared traditional French cuisine. The quality of the food is really outstanding, a result of the combination of high-quality ingredients with truly French cooking techniques. There is no “nouvelle cuisine” here, just pure consistent traditional food. It´s the kind of place Julia Child would have adored! The place is... More

Went there with my partner in Autumn 2013. The food is splendid, seasonal and served with care and kindness. We dined al fresco on the lovely terrace at reasonable prices. I can't wait to go back! The choice is limited to a number of seasonal and fresh products, but everything we had was splendid food, very well prepared.

The decoration is nice and the service is good. Good wine list as well. We were not impressed with the dishes but not disappointed either. I wouldn't go back but I wound't not recommend it.
