Cozy informal place, about 25 covers; bistro with wine bar. One guy doing everything for the front of the house, and doing it well. Mostly full with the French on a Friday night, only one other table with a couple of Americans.
No printed menu; daily offering on several chalk boards; six or seven options for each course. The night we went starters included oysters on the half-shell, escargot casserole, tomato/mozzarella and the simple but perfect large portion of smoked salmon we both had. Main courses were a large portion of beef tartare, a couple of fish options, veal blanquette, half roast lobster. We had a very good beef pavé with green peppercorn sauce, and the andouillette because we had never had it, and many of the French were whaling away at it. If you are unfamiliar with it, think French chitterling sausage. We finished most of it, but strike one off the bucket list.
Very good pavlova and a successful creme brûlée with a hint of saffron wrapped things up to our considerable satisfaction.
Being a wine bar as well as restaurant, there are nice options to drink; fifteen or more each of whites and reds by the glass, and a good bottle list. We asked for a full-bodied Rhone and were guided to a perfect Côtes du Rhone that was a steal at 25€.
A very good value for three courses, two glasses of champagne, the bottle of red and coffees. Kind efficient service. For the genre, best in class.
