This is a very nice brasserie that i was happy to find after a bit of shopping. Very nice staff. The rabbit dish was nicely served with an apple compote. It is in a great location with lots of shopping around.

We visited this place 9 August 2014. The tea room is modern and clean. The staff was friendly but they are with too many. There are too many waiters which is a little bit disturbing if you want to relax. The prices of the non...More
