We went there last night to enjoy a fantastic meal! The service and the atmosphere are great too! We did not wait between each course and the waiters took there time to explain the different meals on their menu! The owner is very friendly
We spent some time too as we had a few questions regarding the setting of the restaurant! We have been going there since 2011 and we will definitely go back again and again!!!

My partner and I booked via the Fork to get 30% off. We even showed the deal before we sat down. The deal specified in English that the discount was for the a la carte menu and excluded drinks and set menu.

When it came time to pay the lady in charge refused to honour the Fork deal even when we showed proof of booking. She said it was only valid for entree&main or main&dessert. She explained the discrepancy by saying the English app was wrong and it was the fault of the Fork.

Beware of trying to book this place as they will not honour the deals they agree to even if you show it to them before sitting down.

The sole was good not great. The boullebaise was stale.

1, We showed you proof that fork had made a misstake on the english version of the deal. That it was a special deal where you had to choose a starter/main course or main course/dessert.

2, Your 1 star review is not accurate about us regarding your experience.

I only write reviews really when a place is terrible and when it is amazing. This place received a review for the latter reason. It's managed by a homely dressed lady who seems the be the mother of the restaurant and assumes the roll extending it to clients, making you feel at home. The wine she recommended was superb and the food, made with love and perfection. Even though our tuna tartare was on the wrong side of the expiry date. The way it was dealt with made all the difference: remove the food, apologise, offer a replacement and then offer a gift of apology( in this case it was champagne). We're going back there for dinner tomorrow night, this place rocks.

Lovely seafood and good choice of drinks. We chose this restaurant because of the good choice on the 25€ menu. Fish soup and oysters were starters followed by a cab and a plat de crustace. All the food was lovely and it is a beautiful setting. Good value for money.

Lovely restaurant near Ste Catherine church. We had the menu at €25 which was wonderful. Good wine list and friendly service.
