Great food and great team! Enjoying lunch time almost every day of the week in this restaurant! Price & quality ratio of the dish of the day are uncompromising! Food quality and dish presentation are always there! Bravo!!!

Waiter way great.

But the salad was terrible, and the price!!! (28.-) for something so fatty, a salad looking old, and tasteless, really bad experience.

From the first moment we entered the restaurant the waiter took invite us with a smile and took great care of us being well served. The food was delicious, interesting and plentiful. One should try the "café gurmand" as ending.

Typical french restaurant that tries to be more than it actually is. The food quality is good but massively over priced for what it offers. I only came here once and did not return as you can find many alternatives with similar or better food at more reasonable prices. The service was good and the atmosphere ok but again nothing special.

Gone a few times for lunch with friends. Food is ok and service is ok. If you would be on the terrace it's heavy traffic that can make conversation difficult.
