As the name suggests, this is not a fancy restaurant. It delivers very well prepared food at reasonable prices. The dishes are classic, solid, old school French, but the lack of any specials meant we were left with a list of somewhat uninspiring choices.
Having said that, except for the cheese souffle, which was bland and dry and without the promised sauce, the dishes that came out were all delicious.
The wines, too, were excellent.
For us, the service was the big problem. Some of it was switched on, but big points off for not ensuring everyone's first drinks came out around the same time, and for making us search for someone who could advise us on the wine. We also had to follow up on an undelivered main (which then came out promptly) and to almost beg them to take our coffee order when it was clear they just wanted to turn off the machine even when they still had several tables of customers. Also, it's not a good look to have your staff slouching around on their breaks at tables right next to your customers. 7/10 See less
