“Quaint cosy bistro with friendly service”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

The server was very friendlily and attentive, but did not speak much English. Is helpful to communicate better if you know some French. The restaurant was cosy and quaint.
We went for the Prix Fix menu for two items for 21 euros- Choice of appetizer and main plate; or choice of main plate and dessert.
We ordered the tomato tuna salad, the steak and fries, salmon and tagliatelle, and pineapple tart. The tomato tuna salad was interesting. It was a tomato stuffed with tuna salad. The tuna seemed to be from the can. The steak and fries were done properly. The salmon had a sauce with pasta cooked al dente. Overall the food was solid but nothing really stood out as special. Perhaps if we have ordered a la carte, we might had some more interesting food.

“Authentic French Style!”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

This is a great experience where the waiters are dressed in authentic style old historic based times in the 30s or 40s.Your bill is written on the table that you are sitting at.The food is very inexpensive but with mouthwatering results that you will come away and say to yourself is that all I paid for that.Did they miss something.The entrance to this wonderful restaurant is on a side street and also through a door that opens up to an incredible staircase that winds upwards to the main restaurant.This is a great place to visit and will take you back in time.Excellent service and incredible atmosphere.

“Cosy Parisian Bistro”
Reviewed 18 April 2014

Completely agree with the other reviews on here. Really good food, lovely atmosphere and great, friendly service. €100 for 3 courses, aperitifs, digestifs, a bottle of wine and coffee. Would definitely go back again (we were tempted to eat there two nights in a row, but wanted to try out a wider. Variety of restaurants!)
