Really cute bistro serving delicious food. Staying around the corner from the restaurant and food this place by accident. We ordered the ham, mozzarella and tomato starter followed by monkfish in green pepper sauce and mussels on linguini. Everything was really good.

Nice people, nice food ! You may have a complete meal and also only a pizza. You can go there for a celebration or simply to eat.
