Excellent food from a junior chef supervised (from afar) by their Michelin star boss.... Service however lacking - we were asked to come early at 7:30pm which we did. Prompt initial service (almost too prompt) but as the restaurant became busy we were left behind......More

Small and characteristic restaurant close to Part-Dieu railway station. Following the rules of the new Nouvelle Cuisine with a particular interpretation mixing a lot of ingredients and getting surprising results. Carte de Vins quite essential. To visit.

Nice cozy restaurant with friendly atmosphere. In this restaurant you have not big choise of dishes, you can only choose “meat” or “fish”. The menu is changed each month. The personnel is very nice and always tell you from which ingredients consists this dish. Recommended.

We visited last week. Amazing combination of dishes. Simplistic menu with only 2 choices for each dish really dumbs it down for the novice foodie. Well played Arsenic we had a cracker night.

I am a foodie and this restaurant was great, the best of my trip. I want to go back there again. It is not very centrally located however, worth the journey. We had the set menu.
