Incredibly fresh food direct from the farm & sea are served in an animated room full of local characters that don’t mind the close quarters or cheeky servers cracking jokes. It is part of its charm. Grilled whole steaks and mashed potatoes served in gut-busting portions followed by bowls of riz au lait pudding are why this restaurant is one of the top ten “musts” in the city.
