We stumbled over this restaurant. We had a great meal with great service. The menu is in French only, but the waiter speaks English, so you can ask anything.

Followed the T/A reviews and also a recommendation by a local antique dealer we booked in for dinner. Charming, discreet and helpful service from the Tunisian owner, you're made to relax and feel at home immediately. If unfamiliar with the menu choices he's there to assist.
We also tried on his recommendation a Tunisian red wine and it was really quite excellent and inexpensive, but would grace many a more expensive cellar.
Good value , flavoursome food without being over spiced.
A lovely evening.

We visited this place during a road trip in the Ardennes. The owner is very welcoming and attentive, excellent service overall. The beef was perfectly tender, exactly as we asked, and the lamb also tasted amazing. The owner said that he is bringing a special mix of spices from Tunisia that remains a secret...

If you're traveling anywhere in France or near it - you must go out of your way to stop here!!!! It's a tiny little restaurant, with great service - our French was limited, but the owner was very pleasant and helpful. We arrived on a Saturday evening, I had just wanted a small portion of food as I wasn't to hunger - however when the food came I couldn't help but devour everything! I ate a lot of really great food in France but this by far was the best - the shrimp appetizer was so flavourful, with a hint of exotic spice. The lamb was cooked to perfection, the tea was delicious, and desert was to die for. It was an incredible experience and the highlight of my culinary adventures.

This restaurant in a small town in the northern France is worth every note excellent it received. I had a steak in pepper sauce and it was perhaps the best steak I have ever had. Everything was tasty, served in a nice style and by very nice people. And not overwhelmingly expensive. If you are in the town do not look for anything else...
