Beautiful little restaurant tucked away on a quiet street. We have been several times and the food is always excellent. Love the small bar area too. A great romantic meal awaits you. Don't hesitate to visit.

The food is amazing, the staff are friendly and welcoming, and the outdoor seating area is beautiful. I recommend this restaurant to everyone I meet here in PV. I think I've had just about everything on the menu and my... More

This modest but outstanding addition to PV dining has the ambience of a small French-style bistro, with a nice menu and efficient service. The escargo and filet were outstanding, the pasta very good. One block from Cathedral, great food without pretension. Will go on my must visit list.

As a couple we stumbled upon this quaint gem after witnessing the procession of Saint Joseph at the Church just meters away . We were surprised to be instantly offered the cutest table window for two which over looked the street.

My favorite address in PV. The place is adorable, it's like being in a French bistro, and the food truly excellent. I love the mussels, very fresh and tasty, served with a generous portion of fries. Excellent meat and fish dishes, French specialties and divine desserts. Highly recommended !
