I was traveling alone and was attracted to the menu on offer. Staff were very welcoming, attentive and helpful in translating the menu and providing great service in what became a very busy restaurant. I chose the goat's cheese bruschetta and was impressed with both...More

Back with a vengeance, or rather a gusto, after two years, we found ourselves in the same place at the same time at lunch. This time around, we thoroughly enjoyed it just as the first time. We had between us a Greek salad and foie...More

We enjoyed dining in the small shaded terrace, off the street. We liked the lamb shank (souris d’agneau), which was traditional and excellent, and filet of dorade royale, a delicious sauteed fish, served on risotto. They have a good wine list, with Loire wines in...More

Location is good. Service is good. Food was bland. Had crispy cheese for started. Not much taste. Lamb was ok. Banana dessert poor. The chocolate mousse was tasteless. Overall I felt it did not live up to the reviews and as such was very overpriced.

Sunday lunch is 1200 - 1400. Highly recommend the foie gras appetizer and the lamb shank or fish, along with the wines recommended by Frederic. You won't regret it.
