A warm, smallish, traditional, bustling neighborhood restaurant near the Presidion, where the French owner and chef take(s) pride in lovely food, good wine, excellent service. It isn't cheap, but it sends you out with a smile on your face. Ours, anyway.

Delightful food, welcoming staff. Very nice setting. Chef/owner adds so much personality to the restaurant. He greets each table personally. They are helpful with wine suggestions and very patient with their customers. Nice mix of people, couples, families, young & older.
