The food was good - rustic and hearty. It was very tasty. Perhaps a little expensive given the style of cuisine. The decor is vintage/hipster with a friendly atmosphere. A very relaxed evening, but not polished, if that is what you are looking for.

Very nice place, worth a visit. The staff was very slow. Had the 3-course meal. Good, but not fantastic. Menus only in French, but google translate is your friend!

True French feel - service is slightly more relaxed so not for the hungry/impatient, however fab interior and delicious food in slightly off the beaten track location...far less touristy than most!
