Thoutoughly enjoyed my meal here. Try the hangar steak & frites, very tasty. The escargot & chicken oysters were good too, as was the pate. The peach sorbet was a nice way to end the meal.

Heavenly Breakfast with my wife. Perfect Capuccinos. I had the French-toast and my wife the Eggs Benedict. We shared. The perfect combination. To be eaten slowly and savored. Worth the price and more. Perfect service. Heavenly!
