Called here when on a business trip whilst staying just down the road. I had duck and my vegetarian colleague had a sweet potato stew. Both meals were excellent. I had a chocolate desert which was really nice and my colleague had a coconut Mille feuille which she described as one of the best deserts she had ever had. Overall... More

I've gone to this restaurant twice already and it's not going to be my last time going back. This restaurant has such a great romantic atmosphere and serves the most delicious french cuisine at reasonable enough prices, however the portion sizes aren't in keep with the traditional french portion sizes which is a great thing when you are starving for...

Went there for the English breakfast. They do American or English breakfast as well as many other dishes. The breakfast was like a French interpretation of the classic English and all the better for it. Good produce, well cooked and loads of it. Set me up great for the entire day. Highly recommended.

Went here after trying to go to the #2 rated Resturant and could not have been happier. Appetizer: eggs Benedict with smoked salmon. To start, the hollandaise sauce was perfect. Obviously made from scratch, very light and flavourful. The smoked salmon was extremely delicate and flavourful. came with 2 eggs. Perfect. 9€ Meal: canard. Came with noodles and veggies. Each...

A smart, sophisticated little modernist bistro, with high standards all round and well worth a lunchtime visit.

Wow! I've had quite a few meals here and never anything less than fantastic. Unbelievably cheap prices also and friendly staff. The mousse au chocolat with chartreuse is to die for

Went here for "breakfast" which is served from 11 am. You get two choices; american or english breakfast. Our party ordered both, and we were all pleased with the food. Service was OK, the waitress tried her best to communicate with us in english. Prices were good, 10-13 € for a large breakfast with juice and coffee/tea. Recommended!

A great place to go to as a couple or with friends. A real cafe to dine as well. A good place to spend your whole evening, in their cozy chairs upstairs or at the bar, after dinner. Their menu is good, not outstanding, but just a little bit different; they made it their own, which I like, at a... More
