Went here as the nearby Chez George was booked up. Nice wine, pleasant starters; we had the seafood vol-au-vent and the foie gras. The mains were the issue. The Butcher's choice beef was so chewy, it was virtually inedible. There was a distinctive unpleasant shrimpy...More

I am at a loss to understand how Trip Advisor's algorithm could end up rating this restaurant higher than lousy to mediocre. Or how so many people could end up eating here and finding it with any merits other than it's cheap. Dining in a...More

Unfriendly service, French classics prepared poorly. Le sabayon was not fresh. Way better restaurants in the area for the same price.

Average dinner. Not happy and nothing really to complain about. Better to consider this restaurant as something slightly better than a pub serving food.

We were looking for an interesting local restaurant and were walking around the old town when we chanced upon the bistro. While patronage is not always a good indicator, the sheer number of people dining at bistro was impressive. We opted for the set menu...More
