Warm and thirsty, I walk in to half full Au Petit Gari. I Ordered 1 beer. After 20 - 25 min the beer finaly arrived. Fast service? Not in my opinion.

The area around the restaurant is very nice---service is OK--I do not recommend the steak. It was very tough and hard to cut and eat. Wife had seafood--very good.
