This is a small restaurant by the main church. We had reservations at 1830 and the place was empty. That should have been our 1st clue. The small tables for 4 were just big enough to comfortably sit 2. Glad we did not come as...More

This remarkable restaurant is easily missed as one is walking by. Once through the doorway, one is transported into a Parisian bistro. The service was prompt, charming, and efficient. The choices (outside of a limited 'children's menu) were ample and the food is definitely superb....More

Best french food I've ever had. The french onion soup is magic. The beef stew is out of this world. This is not fancy french food, and everything is simple, intimate and elegant. Please go visit La Cigale when you are at PV. You won't...More
