We tried to order drinks in the afternoon but finally gave up as the horrible tattooed waitress had no time for us - so we left 😡

This is brassiere is very colourful linking the décor of interior with the restaurant with the outdoor setting. Food was very good, service efficient and friendly, and price very reasonable. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to everybody.

Good food, nice wine, reasonably priced. Just two waiters kept everyone well-served on a busy evening. The interior is really beautiful.

Everything more than ok. Friendly staff, good food, creatively presented and sufficient for a fair price. The original bel-epoque atmosphere of the restaurant is a little bit damaged by some modern interior elements (around bar and first floor). Worth eating there.

If you are not French, don't bother ! Left to wait for order, preference to locals. Food not brilliant and expensive. Nice place visually but no atmosphere. Service was slow and not very friendly. Would not bother unless you had no where else. Please note - we did try to speak French and was not helped comprehend the French Menu... More

Beautifull setting, atmosphere. Delicious food, tried the scallops with a delicious vin jaune sauce. The john dory filets were delicious as well. We will definitely return

Amazing decor, but just too bright for an evening meal. The restaurant was less than half full but the customers were all made so sit close together at one end. Unfriendly, unhelpful service, although the food was good and the portions large.

This is a house with history and has been modernised (unnecessarily in my opinion) which is still serving good food after 100 years. We had a menu with local specialties including game for 28 Euros and were happy with the food and the good local wine. Would definitley come here again.
