I usually go for the shrimp cocktail but tried the French onion soup - it was once of the tastiest soups I've ever eaten. Steak frittes were equally good... More

There was a set price menu and an a la carte menu. The choice in a la carte was excellent, but there was more than enough variety to make me choose the set menu. Decent service, great food, good wine without breaking the bank.
