Lounge
$$
“$$$ Kitchen: Wine Bar (seasonal kitchen) Most popular dish: The burger and the fish are musts. Price: $$$ Why you should go: It's a good place to go for dinner, especially on the summer terrace. The atmosphere is over 25-40 years old and the wine is flowing! If you have already eaten, you can go and have a drink in the evening, because it's more like a bar than a restaurant. * If your budget is very tight, I recommend the neighborhood bar Courcelle nearby. Always festive!”
