Wonderful traditional French cuisine at this lovely restaurant. All the food was excellently prepared with great flavours. Nice ambiance about the place. Service was friendly enough, but a little hit or miss at times and occasionally difficult to get servers attention

I don't know for sure, but the tables on the front of the restaurant are on a public footpath, so I don't see how they could stop you sitting down with a dog. Sorry I can't help further.
