It is a great restaurant to go with kids (there are not a lot in France). It's big enough and they have un menu for children. The food is also good. I always eat a hamburger with bernaise sauce and it's great!

The restaurants main theme is meat. Comes in variations of burgers or steaks, with a selection of side dishes and sauces to configure your meal. A nice touch - potatoe crisps on each table to nibble while you wait. The location is nice along the...More
