We came here to have a little snack and a drink. As it was warm everyone was sitting outside and it was very narrow. The toast we had was very average but we still enjoyed sitting there and watching the people.

The only good thing of this restaurant is they are non-stop operating. However, It took 1hour and 10 minutes to serve the salad. The waiter even didn't apologize with knowing that he forgot the order( he was nice guy though). And the quality of food is below average. The most interesting moment we had at the time was that waiter... More

This restaurant has both outside and inside seating, we opted for inside which was a good choice as it had lots of charm. Service was really good and you got the feeling that the staff really enjoyed their work. There was a nice lunch menu and of course plenty on the wine list to chose from. Prices were quite reasonable... More

The decoration of this bistro is quite nice, which made us to get inside. The waiter was friendly and caring. We had scampis sautés with vegetables. The scampis with a light taste of pastis were very good, even delicious, but the vegetables a bit overcooked. The deserts were delicious: apple pie and chocolat fondant. House rosé wine quite ok. Most... More

A nice looking Bistrot just off the street, feeling a bit hungry and keen on a nice bite, why not step inside? Turned out to be an excellent choice! The dinner we had was simply lovely. Nicely served, and the taste was clearly above average. I had a breathtakingly good tartar, the wife an eqully excellent carpaccio, shared a bottle... More

We were offfered 3 alternatives and chose one. We were given a small jug of wine. Another 15 min wait and another inquiry as... More

My wife and I had dinner here in January 2017. We both had entrecote (a point) and it was the worst piece of meat we've had in decades. Reminded me of trips behind the Iron Curtain in the 60's. We tried to speak to the waiter but he pretended he did not understand French, English, German, Spanish or Italian. Must... More
