Gorgeous typical French Bistro, slightly pricey but probably due to the euro exchange rate. Staff really friendly and understood our awful French/English. Food beautiful but you definitely need to book. Restaurant empty at 7.30 but busting at the seams at 7.45!!!

We've been here twice now and both times the food was very good and service excellent. Their 'Specials' board has a interesting variety of regional and pork dishes, but interesting variations on beef and veal are also available. If I can criticise it at all...More
