First time I went there, it was 20 years ago. I come back two or three times every year, and it is still as good. Hearthy food, generous portions. "En sauce" style : you should go there on a cold winter night... Service can be...More

Great french cuisine set in a very busy street just off of the Place St Michel. Lots of hustle and bustle around and good atmosphere. Food was excellent. Tried to go back a second time but sadly they were fully booked. Would definitely recommend.
