It is a small and cozy little bistro. I enjoyed the food: had the salmon appetizer and filet de raie a la grenobloise which is a dish that is pretty hard to find in a bistro. Both dishes were very good

Typical and charming french bistrot very inspired from the traditionnal bouchon lyonnais and parisian brasserie. The food is delicate, tasty, generous and home-made ! We also provide excellent tapas for the afterworks every evening from 5.30pm with competitive happy hour ! Kitchen is open from Monday to Friday 12am to 2pm and 7pm to 10pm. And on Saturday from 7pm to 10pm.
