Friendly place, no outdoor seating, quite a few vegetarian options. The menu is a bit complicated because the tapas choices are on a blackboard to the left of the bar, the wine list is on another blackboard behind the bar, and the rest are on laminated sheets on the tables, so we found ourselves running around quite a bit to try to figure out what we wanted. We chose six tapas and a bottle of (excellent) Rioja. A basket of bread was provided (which looked good but I'm gluten-free so can't say for sure, but my companion seemed happy with it). The tapas were interestingly French-style, e.g. 'papas bravas' - nicely sauteed potatoes with spicy mayo on the side. The soft-boiled egg was served cold, on a bed of chilled chopped tomato and onion, which was a bit weird. The tomato and mozzarella salad, and the vegetable beignets (fritters), were excellent; we went back for seconds of those (and I had some Provencal anchovies with them, which I very much enjoyed). The pan con queso (I think it was called) turned out to be cheese on toast, which I couldn't eat; my partner said it was OK though a bit boring. I can't remember what the sixth one was. Six tapas might be enough for two if both people can eat bread; nine was definitely enough for us, even with only one of us able to eat the bread. We didn't have room for dessert. The staff were very friendly, the vibe was pleasant, and the prices reasonable. This place is open till midnight and you can go in just for a drink, or drink and snack, if you want. I'd happily eat here again if I visit Amiens again in the future.

We really enjoyed our visit here, so easy to access thanks to the central location. It seems like this is a popular choice for locals but we never really felt like the "outsiders".

The bartender was extremely patient and helpful, assisting with translating the menu where necessary. Our chosen Tapas dishes were all excellent and especially good value.

We stayed around for cocktails until late, the "crocodillo" was a particular favourite. Great atmosphere throughout and even enjoyed some close up sleight of hand magic for a short time.

If you're looking for ideas in Amiens - you don't need to look any further!

Maybe I should have resorted to the internet a lot sooner when checking out bars in Amiens because the first night I was there I hit some pretty ordinary places. Actually, I did know of some but they seemed to be a bit of a hike, however, on the second night there, not being satisfied in simply sitting around the hotel I decided to go and check out some of the recommended places. I have to admit that I was glad that I did because this was a pretty awesome bar. Okay, it was quiet, but that isn't necessarily a bad thing – sometimes a quiet bar is actually a really good thing, especially if you just want a nice and relaxing drink. Anyway, the thing that really struck me was that the bartender actually recommended a beer, and a pretty decent beer at that (I had pick something that seemed to be pretty standard). With service like that no wonder this bar comes highly recommended.
