Small and cozy place in the heart on Colonia Roma, the epicenter of entertainment in the city.
Mainly French food with Argentinean and Italian touches that correspond to the owner’s origins. On the menu, Nocoise salads and the chicken casserole are highlighted as the typical French dishes, but it also has a variety of delicious pizzas and grilled cuts.
