La Cigale

Updated 04/07/2014

Fodor's Review

Palm trees, gleaming woodwork, colorful enamel tiles, and painted ceilings have led to the official recognition of La Cigale brasserie (built in 1895) as a monument historique. You can savor its Belle Époque blandishments without spending a fortune—the prix-fixe lunch menus are a good value. But the banks of fresh oysters and well-stacked dessert cart may tempt you to order à la carte. Best of all, it's open every day from early morning till after midnight, a rare convenience in France.

Typical 19th century Brasserie

I know that brasserie for more than 10 years and really still like to go for a plate of oysters or a main course for the atmosphere and the excellent service. Without reservation you will have to wait but always be attended. Good place to feel the beat of the town.
