In the middle of winter, L'Espiguette provides a warm, inviting and very attractive respite from the cold. The food is good, the service pleasant and efficient and the wine list excellent. It is very busy, so a reservation is a good idea.

When we stumbled across this little restaurant, it was late afternoon and the place was deserted, the doors were all shut. But I tried the front door and it was open. So we wandered in and met an older looking gentleman behind the bar. We...More

A charming restaurant looking out on the tiniest of squares on a sweet cobblestone street in Rouen. We went there for a lunch of "cocotte des raviolis en ragu" and were greeted with individual steel pots filled with delicious cheese raviolis in a meat sauce...More
