Never hesitate to share your opinion with your waiter if your meat is not exactly like you want it. Sometimes it's possible to help you to have the perfect lunch and we do it with pleasure.

Great value for money, biggest steaks in the Canton, it's smart to make a reservation of the table since the place is so popular. There's enough (free) parking.

Service is slow and deplorable. Can't pay extra to have French fries with my tartare. Waited 30 min to have two pieces of toast. Do not recommend.

You are right, at midday we do not serve french fries. Maybe it's because the tartare is self suffisant ;-)

It should have been a big misunderstanding. We use to pack out and have really no problem with that. Im sorry for the inconvenience.

The place has been renovated. Beautiful warehouse lights hang down from the high ceiling, walls painted, etc. Menu prices went up a little as well but quality hasn't followed. My family ordered Tartare de Boeuf which came still in a generous portion, but the toasts...More
