    Recommended entrées: steak frites featuring a thin sirloin sided with mounds of glistening fries, and specials like an aioli garni of cod accompanied by steamed vegetables and a handful of snails. Read more

    Cash only but worth it because the prices are low. Australian burger is amazing but don't order it medium, they over cook it slightly.

    Everything was so salty, to the point of inedible! The mussels w/ curry and apple, the fries, the monkfish with polenta...maybe it was an off night?

    The duck and the pork medallions are both very tasty and well presented. Nutella tiramisu FTW! It's really more like a heavenly, dense mousse!
