We went there by chance needing a quick lunch and thought it was fabulous . They are highly efficient and welcomed us warmly. The restaurant is not huge and we were glad to have got there at about 12 noon. I had the dish of 5 different types of smoked fish on the 3 course menu served with an excellent... More

Good value for money. The café doesnt seat many, and it does get filled up with locals, but the staff are friendly and the food is good, and filling.

Typical French bar serving quality lunch at exceptional value. Welcoming, fun, local owners. Near the market and a great place to while away the day with good wine and friendly locals.
