We stopped here for a quick lunch as it was very close to where we were staying. The place was very busy, mainly with young people, The food was good and very reasonably priced. Service was also very good.

This place is really popular, and on a Sunday you will either need to book, or be prepared to wait a while. As we hadn't booked we waited around 10 mins to be seated. It did take another 5 minutes or so before our orders were taken, but once ordered everything came out pretty quickly. The food was nice, tasty... More

We had a very good afternoon Snack in this Bistro. The quiche for 6,5 with salat and a glass of vine for 3 was really good. It was really crowded so the service staff was overcharged. In general I will recommend this Bistro because of the good meal, fair prices, the nice athmosphere and the good Location.

Salads, tartines and the like, wonderfully prepared, make this a great lunch choice in town. Prices are reasonable and there are daily specials. Dine in the large room or at one of the few tables in front of the restaurant.

We had lunch at Karl's on the recommendation of our hotel and we were not disappointed. The food is tasty with plenty of variety to choose from, the staff are efficient and friendly. It is situated in a local town square which is has a fountain, buskers (acrobats and musicians), and is a great "people watching" spot while you enjoy... More

Came here Monday morning for breakfast to go when it seemed every other patisserie was closed! Quick service, good pastries and slightly above average prices. Good relaxed atmosphere and looked lovely in the evening too.

We were in need of something other than duck or pate and this provided the answer. An excellent salad de chèvre and veg salad. Superb bruschetta. Well worth a stop.

Really not impressed - both quality and service were underwhelming. We were left queueing without anybody acknowledging us for 10 minutes. We were eventually seated, without menus. After collecting menus ourselves we asked 2 different members of staff to collect our order, both of whom were unable to. After 20 minutes of trying and as we were about to leave... More
