We live locally and have enjoyed breakfast, lunch and dinner here over the past couple of months. Breakfast is great value. There is always something nice on the express lunch menu. The evening dinner specials are delicious. All in a very authentic French setting.

Been here many times over the years... small bistro tightly packed tables and no frills. Decor could now do with some updating. I had the French onion soup followed by the salmon which was perfectly cooked. My wife had the calves liver which was good...More
