If you are looking for a restaurant where you can eat early, this bistro, located in the cobbled part of the city, offers very good food and service. I had rabbit stew, which was nicely done. The nougat glace was outstanding.

Traditional dishes done exceptionally well. And HUGE portions! Very friendly, too. In a quieter area of town but still only a few minutes walk from the centre. A super find!

On a wet Saturday night we had a very warm welcome here. The rabbit casserole with a poached pear and blueberries was delicious. Real home cooking. Friendly service.
