Quiet, friendly with good food and service at a reasonable price. Due to problems with another reservation ended up at the L'Alcove at last minute. Unusually welcoming considering it was almost 2.00. So glad we ended up there. I'll be back!

Went for lunch with my wife and friends. I had the fish and my wife had the beef bourgeois. Both were excellent. Sat outside, and there were the occasional smells that wafted by...but that's the only negative, inside is nice.

Great lunch. Only a few options but perfect. Duck, cod or beef. Service is excellent. Our waiter worked in Australia so our lack of French was not a problem. Small with excellent food at a reasonable price 15 EUR for lunch.

The restaurant is located in a narrow alley which makes the outside seating quite surreal. If you are seated outside you could see a beautiful church at the end of the street. The food quality, taste and presentation were outstanding. The service made us feel...More
