A lovely unassuming restaurant, where you can dine in the intimate ground floor area, upstairs or outside in the small square. The staff weren't overly friendly, but were helpful. The food was beautifully presented and really delicious. Definitely a place worth visiting again.

Four of us eat in the open courtyard at the back of the restaurant beneath the wall of the cathedral. The menu was innovative and reasonably priced. The wine list is short rather than limited. The service was attentive and helpful.

We walked in after touring the cathedral; we were amazed at the quality of the food! The restaurant was booked so we ate outside, good move. There were 100% locals sharing our tables. Our waitress was the best in France, efficient and actually prompt! Highly...More

Small place with upstairs and downstairs seating. Friendly service with also English speaking waiters. Typical brasserie type food with a fancier salad here and there. Nice atmosphere and fine quality for the price, also for the wine. And gargoyles all over the walls , therefore...More

Being beside the Cathedral and open when many places are not, this is quite a useful place. Best in Summer when you can eat outside or in the great little court yard at the back. Booze is a bit pricey, and we have yet to...More
