Went here with some friends recently and were so impressed we went back last Saturday. Downstairs was full and we were accommodated on the first floor.

I went here for lunch today while wandering around near Trinity College looking for a place for lunch. The place is smallish though the food and service are great. Highly recommended for those liking French food. It is also not that expensive, another plus.

This is a lovely quaint spot. A hidden gem of sorts in Dublin City centre. The early bird price is great, with a selection that should please everyone. Both of us were very happy with our meal. I would definitely come back here. Glad I found this place!
