Obituary

You felt yourself in France in this intimate little bistro restaurant established in 1979 a stoneís throw from the Cutty Sark.

Evening dining only from Wednesday to Saturday--except for the long lunch session on Sundays, when there are prix fixe menus (£11.75 for 3 courses, £9.95 for two--including French bread and coffee).
