“Still reliable, still cramped, still comforting”, this is a “bustling French bistro as you might have found in Paris in the 1980s”, where “meaty dishes excel” (“who wants to eat cutting edge all the time?”), and where there’s a “great ambience” in which to enjoy them.

“A real gem”“it really feels like you’ve walked into a restaurant in rural France” when you step inside this popular and “consistently excellent” local (“a superb replica of a warm and cosy bistro of twenty years ago”) – a “cramped and busy” operation with “fantastic food and knowledgeable staff”.
