Had lunch here with a French speaking friend and we were both impressed with the food and the fact as it was a weekend we were allowed to byog.

Décor is very bland and you could be in a rural/country café. The quality of the food makes up for the lack of theme. Service was good but not overly attentive - to the point that you could feel you were being ignored. The menu...More

Le Trader is an excellent restaurant. Good atmosphere, wine and food. I really enjoy restaurants that offer a limited menu but where you know everything will be really good, allowing you to try something new without any fear of disappointment. We will eat here again.

Nice place. We ate starter/main course/dessert, it was hearty. Fine and refined cooking. There is a good selection of wines (Languedoc red wine was a good choice!). The staff is welcoming and effective. We had a really good time there.
