The restaurant near downtown in a old building. The waiter was knowlegeable about the entire menu and provided some excellent advice. The gazpacho for an appetizer was tasty, and was a large seving. I had Vol-au-Vent Fruits de Mer, which is a puff pastry filled...More

I not sure if I had ever ordered rabbit before, but I am glad I did. It was excellent. The chef preparation was so good that I can't imagine anything subpar coming out of their kitchen. I was the first customer so no waits for...More

Original restaurant off the tourist radar. Great service, yummy mussels, tender steak, and nice wine list. If you want an original cafe near downtown, this is the place.

So good to get away from the Riverwalk. The food was even better than expected. Mussels in pesto garlic wine sauce, duck confit with polenta, creme brulee....all nearly perfect and amazingly tasty. Weekday evening, service was great as well. Just do it.
