Concept is keep it simple. And with this in mind the food is good but overpriced - very! You only get one glass per person despite ordering wine and sparkling water. And with drink from the bottle concept I personally believe price should be less...More

We ate here on a sunny day in July, with shoppers and workers happily buzzing around. Lovely food. The sardines are great as is the piperade. Good and speedy service. All fresh and great atmosphere.

We stopped for a quick lunch. Service was slow, since the place was packed, but the food was terrific! We shared a platter of prosciutto, tomato salad, oysters, fish soup, and a half pitcher of Rose. No frills, but plentiful, tasty, and inexpensive.

Looks like a cute little place outside the market, but the food was less than mediocre. Worst yet is the horrendous service and attitude. We sent back a dish because it was horrible and were astounded to find that they insisted on us paying for...More

We spent late morning here watching them prepare for the lunch rush. The staff was friendly and helped us understand everything they were cooking and we went back and forth with English and French. They are the only restaurant located in the market and have...More
