This is a small, very friendly restaurant with excellent service, fresh food prepared very well, and a great ambience. We squeezed in without a reservation, but I would recommend reserving since there are few tables. There are also outdoor tables for good weather. We ended up sharing some wine with a table of local residents next to us and had... More

The meal we had here was very reasonably priced and service excellent. This is clearly a place run by a few young people who really want to deliver for their clientele.

After reading a few reviews we went for it; on a Tuesday night at 8.30 we thought yeah no problem. Whoops! It was full, but we were asked to come back in one hour and sure enough a table was waiting. The service was great and the (only) person serving was happy to let us choose our red wine from... More

We arrived early. It was quite initially but a buzz developed as the evening wore on. The service was convivial and frequent. Questions were asked and suggestions made and followed. The truit (trout) was good as was the local chardonnay (fresh fruit but not sweet). The fromage was excellent including the comte and a fresh soft cheese. Perfectly matched with... More

It's not uncommon for good restaurants to have a rather limited menu, especially for the the daily offer. Gladly, it's not the case on Cafe Cafe. They have plenty of options to choose from. We went with the daily offer of beef and 'noix de Saint-Jacques' and we were not disappointed. Very good quality at fair price. The atmosphere is... More

This is very small and completely packed, mainly locals. This is cheek by jowl dining but they're all friendly as can be. None friendlier than the one one very hard working, non-stop, smile-y waiter (he needs an assistant!) The food is excellent. And the wine. And the prices are below reasonable. Make a reservation or you'll not set a foot... More

We booked this afternoon for this Thursday evening and just as well we did as the restaurant was full and turning people away. It is a small restaurant of approximately 36 covers with tables packed in and a small kitchen which is visible to the clientele. Mostly young couples and small groups with a spattering of older couples. The menu... More

We arrived at the restaurant without a reservation but luckily we were able to find a table. The service was excellent throughout - pleasant and efficient. Our meal was very good - we chose duck and lamb as our main course and both were very enjoyable. Dessert was good too - we chose a fruit crumble. It was a very... More

Small, busy, friendly place. Maybe a little too busy. Turned away a lot of people who did not have reservations. Service was a little erratic. The scallop dinner was very good. The lamb dinner consisted of some lamb and an overdose of potatoes, no vegetable. We would not return. Closed on Mondays.
