I went to the restaurant because I'd seen it over a number of days and thought it looked inviting. Never again-will check TripAdvisor first! The food (steak) was terrible-a fatty mess. When I mentioned this to the indifferent serving staff I was told this is...More

My family stopped in here for a drink and steak tartare after having a bad meal across the river. The frites were hot and crispy. Tartare could have used extra capers but good overall. Service was warm and friendly.
