One year later, and still the same qppuality. Very good ambiance, very tasty food and a perfect service. Try the jambonneau or the rognons sauce moutarde, you won't be deceived.

Nice and typical food. A bit crowdy which is a good sign 😉 but worth it. Crew is really friendly and chief offered us a cognac
