Bargain-hunters run to this lively café-restaurant that dances to the rhythm of the graceful wait staff in their caps and suspenders. The menu oscillates between brasserie classics and more incisive daily set menus that are flat-out surprising, and all at tiny prices: carpaccio of duck breast, carrot and orange tartelette; filet of red mullet, wild rice and roast pineapples; cod loin, king prawn gnocchi, etc. Discriminating wine cellar.
