This restaurant was very good! Smaller portions like I expected in France, unlike other cafes that we visited during our trip. But ever so tasty!

I specifically asked for ketchup and mayonnaise for my fries, when the food arrived they didn't bring any so I asked another time and they only brought ketchup: so I asked a THIRD time... More
