Don't count on your previous or usual culinary habits. Wherever you come from, you'll be delighted. I tried the foie gras with caramelized figg jam and the veal with mustard sauce. They were of heaven! Ms Corine and her staff are close enough to check...More

We had dinner at this small restaurant. Classic French brasserie/local restaurant style dishes. The food is excellent, waiters mature and experienced with a great attitude. Atmosphere relaxed and informal. Prices very reasonable.

Just go there. You won't be disappointed. Recommend tartare de thon, cervelle de veau, cabillaud, any lamb course and the homemade speculoos ice cream. Have the Graves with it.

This little restaurant has been there for 33 years. And for me, the reason is clear. The owners basically love what they do, and you can see this in the food, the service and the ambience of the restaurant. Is not cheap restaurant, but the...More
