Went here on Friday night with my wife for our wedding anniversary, Great food, steak was rare as requested, good wine, excellent service, will definitely go again. Nice view of the city museum opposite from our table.

Four of us had lunch here in this very centrally located bistro. Comfortable seating, relaxed ambience, friendly and attentive service, and nicely prepared, and elegantly presented, food. Two of us had beef bourguignon which was very good. I would describe servings as adequate rather than...More
