We happened upon this restaurant walking the neighbourhood around our hotel. It was full at 8:30PM on a weeknight. My husband had Gnocchi with Lobster andl Mushrooms and I had Duck Confit. Both dishes very hot and delicious! Lots of locals. Later found out it was reated 27/1480 restaurants. No prices on inside menus but not overpriced for quality.

This charming little bistro offers a more sophisticated take on bistros food than you might expect and the wine list is excellent, with many choices at the lower end of the price range. Service is warm and welcoming and the room is lovely. We had the fresh and smoked salmon tartare with ginger, curry, soy, and sesame, as well as the marrow bone stuffed with mushrooms and chorizo for starters. Both were interesting takes on more common items. And delicious. For mains, we had the saddle of rabbit stuffed with chicken liver and swiss chardand accompanied by a mushroom flan (wow) and the gnocchi in cream of lobster sauce with pan-seared shrimp and morels. The latter was almost too rich, but somehow I just could not stop eating it all!

Échaude is an excellent Bistro serving classic French cuisine. Nice varied list with reasonably price wine. Impeccable service. I had the bone marrow followed by the duck confit. Located in the lower part of the old city on a pedestrian lane. Awesome place!

We enjoyed our meal in this restaurant, virtually a 2 minute walk from our hotel. The service was stellar. For example, our water and wine glasses were filled, and our plates and cutlery were removed efficiently and effortlessly. Their attention to detail was second to none. Our meals were very good (fish and steak) while the dessert (creme brule) was superb!! This is a hopping place and one that we would recommend having a reservation!

Bright and clean restaurant.
Relaxed yet efficient servers
Small yet enticing menu
The food was delicious, hot, and innovative.
My friend had the Bacon Grilled Cheese with duck confit and cheese curds- there was bacon embedded in the bread... GENIUS
I had the Steak Frites- a perfectly cooked hangar steak topped with onions, crispy shoestring fries and grilled baby carrots & leeks. Simply put. YUM.
