A bistrot a bit in the "Art Nouveau" style to which I return again and again for lunch or dinner. Friendly, attentive service, three daily specials, including soup or salad, changing week by week. Usually animated, especially at lunchtime. Well worth a visit.

This is a comfortable restaurant with a somewhat limited menu of quite decent food. It is not haute cuisine, but certainly not a disappointment. They have well-sourced beef, well prepared, a couple of fish and chicken dishes and a good bar. The staff is somewhat...More
