Fodor's Expert Review Le Passage de Virginie

$$ Nimes French

It may be a postage stamp–size dining room with an even smaller terrace on a miniscule street, but this typically southern bistro offers oversize pleasures in the form of fresh, well-prepared, and unpretentious cuisine served in a warm and inviting, if slightly funky, atmosphere. Dishes like tiny mussels with spicy aïoli and melting lamb shoulder with sweet onion confit enhanced by hearty regional wines—all at a reasonable price (especially the two-course €15 lunch menu)—keep devoted locals coming back. A rare find in the heart of the Old Town.
