It is encompassed by a beautiful array of herbs in bloom and has umbrellas to shield you from the sun and rain. The side patio has an awning to serve for that very same purpose and has a quieter, peaceful atmosphere. Enjoy mouth-watering steak frites, fresh seafood, French wine and decadent desserts.
