I ordered Grey Shrimp Croquettes and Lobster fricassee. Both of them were excellent especially Lobster fricassee. Waiters were really sophisticated. Inside of the restaurant was not "luxury" but I believe this is a first class place.

This is a typical bistro dedicated to French seafood cuisine. The staff was very friendly and eager to recommend the house specialties. Everything we ordered was delicious and worth the visit. However, the place is pricey.

Easy to find in the Galleries. The staff was so friendly and helpful and the food lived up to our expiations. We had various types of fish, sweetbreads, etc. to please 6 different people. Brightly lit, maybe a bit to bright, but a winner.

This is a straightforward, traditionally run restaurant with excellent food. For a fancy meal go elsewhere, for a superb meal come here.
