Looking at previous reviews I get the impression that this is a very reliable restaurant in terms of the quality of food. We had the steak, and duck. Both were terrific main courses, cooked to perfection and served beautifully. My only negative comment would be that the restaurant is a little too bright and has a slight 'fast food' feel.... More

This restaurant is fast paced. The waiters are buzy, very buzy. The English speaking restaurant manager was kind enough to take our order by herself. But not very attentive. The restaurant has been recently renovated, looks very nice but is more effective than charming. Food is quite OK, no complaints.

Really nice family diner. Classic French dishes with a modern informal super service. I'll go back there anytime.

Nice ambience with mainly local clientele. Plenty of meat dishes on offer (as the name suggests) but also a variety of other options. Friendly and attentive staff.

Great menu and excellent service, even changed our order at the last minute when we realised we had made a translation error!
