A charming cosy restaurant with cheerful attentive staff , the wine list is comprehensive and the moules mariniere to die for . Authentic Parisian food and atmosphere ,a small slice of France tucked away . Would recommend this establishment to anyone.

Great snack lunch in a busy city-centre bistro. Food as good as the bistro, and staff attentive despite the crowd. More than holds its own in a street full of excellent places to eat.
