We had a very nice dinner, at this excellent restaurant. They have an outdoor terrace with nice trees; and an indoor space. What is interesting, in this restaurant, is that they offer you pistachio nuts, as appetizer, once you are seated, which is unique, in...More

In the middle of winter, L'Espiguette provides a warm, inviting and very attractive respite from the cold. The food is good, the service pleasant and efficient and the wine list excellent. It is very busy, so a reservation is a good idea.
