Don't be deceived by the basement entrance from the Place Balmat; the restaurant actually has a charming dining room by the riverside. Food is very good, well deserving of a Bib Gourmand since 2003. Order à la carte to experience the chef's talent. Nothing creative,...More

This is a very popular restaurant with beautiful seatings over the river. Make sure you book in advance to get a seat with a view. The food is quite good. But I like the food at Panier de 4 saison better.
