We ate in a small courtyard at the rear of the restaurant and it was filled with couples and families. The service was attentive and helpful. The menu was huge and we enjoyed our chosen meals.

We has intended to dine here, starting with an apperatif. However, while the apperatif was lovely ( house distilled rhum) the service was slow and the staff seemed unhappy. We moved elsewhere for dinner.

It was cold in January and we were looking to warm up and to get ourselves a nice something to eat. We parked our car and liked the simple looks of this brasserie. No food guide, no TripAdvisor, nothing. We got a warm welcome, a...More
