This restaurant came recommended by some friends and it definitely delivered. The atmosphere was cozy and traditional and the restaurant is well located in the Marais neighborhood. The menu was varied and the food was simple and delicious. We would definitely recommend this restaurant.

My choice was the slow cooked lamb stew. As dish arrived on the table I was greeted by a complex set of aromas. The dish lived up to its initial greeting! Complex flavours and great ingredients. All helped by friendly staff and a lovely location.
