Facade: typically French, cute, rustic
Decor: Opulent (think heavy velvet curtains and chandeliers) but dark and therefore intimate and cosy.
Dress Code: It’s a busy, noisy but relaxed place. Tables are populated by big groups of mixed-sex friends or couples. You could get away with a frock or a pair of jeans.
Snap: I had a deliciously milky piece of sea bass livened up by a tasty, Mediterranean style caponata with peppers, olives and tomatoes.
Good For: A taste of true France.
