This was presumably a traditional French café/brasserie until a modern makeover, and it remains a very welcome hostelry just off the main rue de la République. We were greeted warmly and served efficiently; and we enjoyed generous portions of brasserie-style food, together with a ‘pot’ of local wine – and all very reasonably priced. Only a few minutes’ walk from the Hotel Carlton, this is a good choice for lunch, or just a drink.

Dropped in for a couple of drinks before dinner.

We have little French communication skills.

The place was at capacity. The waiter, Arthur, was working hard, still had time to politely take our order/s use his English to communicate.

We enjoyed just watching him zoom around the tables, up and down stairs taking and delivering orders.

A short but enjoyable experience.

Good place to go to the toilet. Friendly staff, good beer.
But if you consider dining... don’t! Price-quality ratio is wayyyy to high. I’d rather have a dinner at McDo.

Today, we had a nice lunch here. Poached eggs in red whine sauce with mushrooms and a nice salad with bacon, croutons, and eggs, accompanied by a perfect white whine (Viognier). Value for money, in my opinion.
