L'Estaminet cuisine combines regional dishes (cheese centric) with various popular fresh meat ones (tartare prepared with a knife, nice pieces of beef...) and different preparations of mussels.

Nice restaurant with typical French fair, cheese fondue seemed to be popular and well received. The beef tartar was good and service sufficed. As good as you can get for local food in the busy tourist populated strip.

This busy restaurant in the old town is very popular. You can't reserve a table so have to get there early to avoid disappointment. The good is fair and the staff pleasant. Average restaurant in a busy city. There are better restaurants around.

Terrace sheets are very nice. It looks like Kawadoko in Kyoto, Japan. Cheese foods are very nice. I love them. Cost is suited to foods. My recommend restaurant. テラス席は、川床のような感じで、すごくいいです。 チーズ料理は、どれもおいしく、料金も適正価格だと思います。 オススメします。
