A nice little traditional restaurant near the city centre. With a warm and charming ambience, le Bistrot du quai offers you home-made cooking with fresh seasonal products. From Monday to Friday, you can taste traditional French “gastronomy”, classical dishes modernized or cuisine from around the world (slow cooked meat, fresh fish, cheese-topped dishes, crumbles, tarts and gourmet coffee) served with independent producers’ wines (from many regions of France). In the evening (Saturday included), you may reserve the restaurant only for you! The restaurant can be privatized from fifteen people up to forty for a buffet.
