We were the only English and it was packed, best to book in advance. Several set menus from €9 upwards with dish of the day as well. Food all cooked to order but service was surprisingly fast.

Lovely typical French restaurant, not pretentious. Family run and friendly. Very good English from the waiter, he was very helpful. The menu was good and bilingual. Nice wines to choose from. Overall good value for money in the main city centre

Was recommended to us by the Proprietors of Soleil de Nacre, Hermanville - turned out to be good choice. Good menu with good choices and food very good. They were obviously very busy the night we called but managed to find us a table.
