One of our staples when we lived in Belmont. Great food and friendly service! We stop by whenever we are in the area. We've had the duck salad, quiche Lorraine, mussels and pork chop. All great! Their bread pudding is also delicious.

There are a few seats outside. Order and pay for food at the counter. Offer quiches, burgers, salads. The frites are outstanding. Owner is friendly and will come around to inquire about the food and the service.

Small and good - so busy. Does not take reservations. French food, French owner. Great place for lunch. I asked the owner if he had considered buying the place next door and making the restaurant bigger - he said no - if it were bigger it wouldn't be a proper bistro!

I decided to give this cute little French place a try. You walk up to the counter to order your food, then a waitress brings it to you. Very quaint and comfy, just like a French Bistro! I ordered Mussels. they were huge! BUT, found myself unfortunately salting them every so often as they really didn't have a lot of... More

Although the mussels + frites are my favorite, the salmon and quiche dishes are always excellent. This restaurant is consistently warm, friendly and yummy. Always.

We ordered the Family Meal To Go (Organic Roast Chicken), and it was very tasty! Chicken was moist and not at all dry. All of us thoroughly enjoyed it!

The burger with great cheese and sautéed onions were so yummy! The Pom Frittes were delicious. Topped off with a cold Einstok, Icelandic Ale🍺. Consistently delicious food and lovely atmosphere.
