“Never lets you down”
Reviewed 6 January 2013

Tucked behind the square wehre Joan of Arc was martyred, this is a real French dining experience. The room is like a long railway carriage and if you don't like being too close to your fellow diners, don't go. It is cosy. The decoration is very over the top, like a junk shop but very chic and chichi.

The service can be slow, don't go if you're in a rush. The patron does all the front of house, waitng etc. The kitchens work miracles!

we have eaten here on numerous occasions and the food has never let us down. My last meal was a pea veloute with beautifully seared 'chunks' of foie gras, followed by their signature dish lamb braised with cabbage followed by a croustillante of pineapple and passion fruit, all for 30 euros. The lamb is cooked gently in a bordelaise sauce for 2 and a half hours, wrapped in cabbage leaves. They have a good wine list, plenty of half bottles and wine by the glass. Bread is made on the premisies. The menu changes every month. You need to book ahead.

It is just very food at what it does. If yo compare it with BIstro Gill round the corner - it wins hands down every time on choice, quality and price.
