The restaurant is extremely busy, so that we were unable getting a table for dinner without reservation. Thus we decided have breakfast inside just to enjoy the marvelous Art Nouveau style décor of the dining room. And it was really worth doing. The service is...More

This is an incredible restaurant .. reminiscent of one in Paris. The decor is the ornamental de l'epoque Modern style. Quite overwhelming and extremely interesting. But, whilst the restaurant was extremely busy with tables being re-filled time and time again with a continual flow of...More

The building is definitely worth visiting. This brasserie was famous for its seafood but the quality of the main dishes is not as good as it used to be, but we liked the desserts. So, next time we take friends there, we'll go for a...More

This place is really nice of you are a fan of art deco. When we came it was full of older people. You couldn't have only a drink but you could have breakfast, lunch or dinner (prices are very high).

The interior of this wonderful restaurant draws the crowds and therein lies the problem. They have tables in the rather grand square outside and the long white aprons of the waiting staff tells you this is going to be pricey. Venturing inside for a drink...More
