Alcantara is a little restaurant based in the old Massy since january 2015 and which offers an authentic mediterranean cooking. From only fresh products and home made process, Amar, the cooker (I), cooks and proposes differents specialities of the 23 countries around of the mediterranean area. Inside, there is no card. Amar cooks only with black board "à l'ardoise" and changes everyday the propositions that's why, when U take place, you can eat only it proposed at the moment. The choices are very reduced but its are very very good ! Try it U too !
