Wonderful Dinner find. Great dinner choices. Escargot was amazing. CoD was the freshest and flaky we have had in years. Excellent choice. Small and quaint.

We just happened upon this wonderful spot as we were walking the street behind our hotel. They served the most decadent chocolate mousse that I have ever tasted. Small but delightful place.

In Old Town--recommended by Auberge St. Antoine--they were spot on. Lovely fall evening--outdoor seating (even accommodated our small dog). The beet salad, veal ravioli and duck in cassoulet style were standouts. Very reasonable and nice wine selection.
