Lovely family run restaurant. Good food simply cooked. Friendly staff and a lovely atmosphere. The deserts were amazing. We had a highly enjoyable relaxed lunch. You may find cheaper but I doubt you will find better.

This restaurant offers continuous all day service which was nice when we wanted an early dinner. I had the leg of lamb and my husband had the beef bourgeion. Both were tasty and reasonably priced. Service was also very good. Nice relaxed dinner.

Absolutely! This is a small, very casual family run place that will welcome you with open arms. Try the ratatouille and ask for the special dish of the day. Tell Lilly her fans from NYC say bonjour. Enjoy.
