Owner and chef present simple French food in a very attentive way. Welcoming and great service. Seafood is wonderfully cooked and nicely complemented by vegetables. Local food. Have visited in previous years and the food continues to be very, very good.

On a sleepy Tuesday this was one of the few restaurants open on rue Poilu near our apartment. We were treated nicely and served an enjoyable meal. The desserts were surprisingly big and tasty. We recommend the Profiteroles.

Les Garcons next door was closed so not expecting too much we found a table at la Rade. It was excellent. At a modest Price they produced an excellent three course dinner with a service to match - and the suggested wine was wonderfull.

Enjoyed a tasty meal here after being recommended by the waitress in another restaurant that was full. Service was friendly although very slow. Recommend the Cafe Gourmand dessert.
