    Great value French cafe. Straightforward classic dishes. Lots of nice half bottles of wine if you're feeling 350ml.

    This 24/7 French diner is a fun place to go if you need a bite late night. Burgers are always safe here and prices are semi-reasonable.

    Open 24/7 with a focus on food from Lyon, France. The grilled octopus appetizer is delicious. Roasted pork and herb sausage, steak au poivre, burgers and skirt frites are all good.

    The grilled octopus was expertly cooked. The Merguez was amazingly tasty. My steak came in big and thick, and perfectly pink in the center. The Avion tequila shots were generously and smooth as silk.
