Travelled with a group of people and we chose this cafe for a "typically French breakfast". The service was terrific. The breakfast good - but ith tea, juice and a croissant its not hard to go wrong.

We found this restaurant whilst we were having a wander- both had duck which was delicious and the sauces we had with it was really nice. Had cocktails and they made whatever we wanted and the sweet medley topped it off perfectly Would highly recommend

Nice meal and kind service. No rush. The entrecote was tastefully. Will come back here. The trams are passing but not really giving a problem.

Lovely café with extensive menu and excellent range of drinks. Unfortunately the service is glacial - both in respect of speed and warmth!

We had lunch sitting outside and enjoyed our lunch. My wife had a Seafood Salad and I had Salad of fromages, both of which were very good. The wine list was just average. For dessert we had some wonderful ice cream.

Expensive beer, slow service, good views, tourist trap. The views of the cathedral do not make up for the poor service and inflated prices.
