First of all this restaurant has a lovely french atmosphere being classically decorated without fuss. Service was very good and attentive, however the best part was the food. We were a party of 5 and as things would have it we each chose a different...More

Nothing special here. The food is correct but nothing exceptional. Smoked salmon was standard. Rabbit was so so. Service is OK. Had higher expectation from the previous reviews.

Menu is reasonably well balanced, with also interesting wines (not cheap though). Food was good, interesting (we had sea bass and slowly cooked pork, very good), quickly served and service professional. Sitting relatively confortable. In case of busy night, somewhat noisy and packed.

I had no plan for dinner and walked past here, then checked Tripadvisor and it sounded good. I was worried I wasn't dressed well enough (jeans and blazer) but it was casual despite other listings online. The appetizer (croquettes) were unremarkable, but the daurade entree...More
