Great meal, super staff at reasonable prices. A gem near the market. Tartars were delicious, duck confit was well worth it and the crème brûlée was the perfect end to a delicious meal.

Nice little BYOB restaurant with very friendly service. Everyone enjoyed their food. The menu is short and plays well to seasonal ingredients and the cuisine is tasty, unpretentious and well executed. Small front dining room is a bit drafty in winter so you might want...More

Food was disappointing and service unsatisfactory. This neighbourhood gem has lost much of its appeal. Many better options available in the area.

We went with the family and sat on the terrace in the back. Nice ambience even though you're in a small court yard. The food was very good and BYOB is a bonus.

The food is wonderful with a good selection, the service is great and the place is cozy and pretty. The prices are reasonable and how nice that you can bring your wine. It is right in front of the metro which is very cool.
