We decided to go here on the basis of the reviews and wanting to try something a bit different. We had 2 different types of fritters/beignets - one aubergine and one salt cod.

My wife had a "dorade" fish that she thought had more bonnes than meat, but still good. We also had some fried bananas and "somosas" as starters. Service was very pleasing. Overall a very good experience.
