a hidden gem! A small 3-storey restaurant in the former cathedral. Low ceilings with heavy exposed wooden beams and white-washed walls adorned with all sorts, dimly candle-lit, all creating such a nice atmosphere. Like old slow-food restaurants i’ve been to italy. We had really nice...More

This is a very old, very small little restaurant. There are four tables split between two floors, and a couple of outside tables. It is very dark inside. The guidebook describes the restaurant as serving Louisiana-style food. We've been to Louisiana several times, so we...More

Talk about a quirky old building full of history! It's on the corner of the church premises, so is hundreds of years old. It has 3 tiny floors, and with a few tables set outside in the lane it probably seats around 20 people max....More

The restaurant was very busy and the meal we wanted to order had sold out. Instead we had prawn sandwich with cajun fries, the portion size was good and it was very tasty. The restaurant is quite quirky and set on three floors. The rooms...More

The place looks cool and cosy. Their coffee was mediocre, home grown is not always superior. Prices were fair though, hence the 3 stars

The coffe is organic which has a different flavor. We are not Starbucks.

Smallest cafe I've ever been in, maybe 20 or so seats over a couple of floors. Charming and quirky place I only found through LP and Rough guides.

Thank you for coming. We must admit that our service is not the best...perhaps having 3 floors to climb puts us at a disadvantage. But....we do have our famous BELLS on each floor for service. I trust your waiter showed them to you. Even though...More
