Our visit here was on a wet Saturday evening. Too be honest if the weather had been better we might have missed visiting here. The menu was very similar to what you sometimes get in pubs in the U.K. Burgers, steak a few to mention. Staff were friendly and made our visit enjoyable

I was rather surprised to read the negative reviews. Fortunately we took them with a pinch of salt. We ate here on a Sunday evening when many other places were closed. We were glad we did and came back the next day for lunch. All staff were friendly including both barmen. I think that trying to speak French helps as... More

Good food, good price, friendly waiters. Think the boys were more impressed with the fact they had lolly pops on their dinner plates. We didn't drink so not sure on the prices but food and soft drinks were very good. For four of us don't think it came to more than €40. Boys had ice creams as well. Decor clean... More

Seems popular with locals sitting outside on the square overlooking the theatre and fountain (some are just drinking - the house wine here is good value). I got a good magret de canard that was a bargain at €10, including great chips. Profiteroles perhaps not as good - very mushy. Some English spoken but menu only in French.

4 of us went in for a pre dinner drink. We ordered the drinks and asked the barman for white wine. Asked him did he have muscadet and he rudely turned his back and said "no ". He proceeded to pour a glass of something that looked like wine . Took our money and didn't even say thanks.
