They offer excellent French cuisine prepared using the flavours and scents of the french farm house kitchen, fresh seafood, and excellent wine. Menu items include Coquilles Saint-Jacques à la Provençale, Escargot, various pates, fresh sole meunière, filet Mignon, Châteaubriand, and fresh oysters. There is a single vegetarian entrée on the menu, although there are plenty of salads and side dishes available.
Desserts include a wonderful variation on American apple pie, Tartin tatin, as well as crème brulee and chocolate mousse.
There is a lively piano bar and violin every night, which keeps the drunken bypassers wandering between the bars on either side reasonably amused. Many a passerby wandered in through the doorway to hear their favorite song. The violinist has a voice like Tony Bennett, and the duo knows more than 3000 songs, including many American tunes. They invited me up to sing a tune with them. It was great fun!
The restaurant is located on a narrow cobblestone street between the Old Town Square and the Charles Bridge and is open until 2am for a late-night supper on weekends. Reservations are highly recommended.
Dinner with dessert will cost from $30 to $50, plus wine. Dessert and cappuccino is about $12.
