Reviewed 19 July 2013

We had a very nice meal and the service was excellent. They were very accommodating to dietary requirements. Pizza crust was excellent and pasta was nicely cooked and tasty. Good pizza knives too.

“Excellent service, Excellent Pizza!!”
Reviewed 9 July 2013

Excellent service, really enjoyed our homemade pizza, we asked for one to be made as a Calzone rather than a pizza which they did happily. Pizza cost around 10 euros so not expensive. I would definitely recommend for a nice, relaxed place to eat.

“Pleasant backstreet restaurant with reasonable food”
Reviewed 4 July 2013

I enjoyed the vibe in this place, though I thought the food was a little bland by french standards. We had the set menu, which was good value. But the beef steak seemed very tough, and the dessert wasn't really the quality of other French restaurants.

Afterwards we thought possibly the pizza would have been a better bet, as it's clearly set out to be a sort of Italian-French fusion venue.

“France's shame”
Reviewed 2 June 2013

Where to start? confused and cheap bland salads, tough tough meat and indifferently cooked by someone who certainly was no chef. I'm concerned about the good reviews, because Trip advisor is trusted and people go based on these.
The Veal Saltimbocca, Turkey schnitzel and Beef and shallots were tasteless and tough. The pile of overcooked bland pasta sides were beyond awful. Don't go near this place.
