This unpretentious restaurant is known for its slow approach to food, meaning each ingredient is prepared to order, making dinner a sometimes longer-than-expected experience. Chef and owner Wil Demandt frequents each table himself, explaining the multiple-course and a la carte menu options. Though predominantly French, there are influences of varied Mediterranean cuisines, which can be tasted in dishes such as pigeon with morel mushrooms and risotto with shaved black truffles. Barren white walls house a simple dining room of red-topped metallic tables, green plants, and candles. A canal-side terrace makes for a more romantic atmosphere during the warmer months.
