Fodor's Review

At this relaxed, friendly bistro serving Scots-French fare, there's a strong emphasis on fresh local meat, with the Scottish touch accounting for slightly sweeter-than-usual sauces. Standouts include halibut with a horseradish-and-chervil cream, and slow-roasted pork belly with fruity relish. You may bring your own bottle of wine—an excellent wineshop is just a block away—although the restaurant serves wine, too, along with top-notch brandy. Plain but cheerful thanks

to bright colors and wooden fixtures, it's perfect for a sociable night out with friends.
