Sunday night without a plan. We ended here after searching for something open in the area and Mr. really wanted to eat traditional food (i.e. French food). The house was full and we didn't see any menus visible so we just checked what people were eating on their plates (we were peeking from the window). Since we didn't book a table, we had to wait a while (15 to 30 minutes) to get one (we arrived around 9h45 PM). While we waited, we had time to check this restaurant's reviews and we were relieved with the positive comments. The place seems very popular among tourists and French people and it's like traveling back in time decoration wise. When you think of a French bistrot, I think this place comes to my mind right away after this visit.

Mr. and I both ordered "pot au feu" (French beef stew - around 17?) and it was very good. Despite the initial wait to get a table, we didn't wait that much for our dishes. Too bad we didn't have any space left for dessert because they sounded good when reading the menu.
