What a great name for a restaurant! I love it. But for some reason the name seems more English than French. Ah, what do I know? Nuttin!

Nice shot, too. I'll bet it was a good lunch!

It is a wonderful on the inside as it is on the outside.

I'm so drawn by the rich interior, as well as the name! (I like the previous shots too, nice to see a return photo about 4 years later.)

This restaurant has a simple charm.

Can dogs - and people - still do that in France? One of the few progressive developments in this country is that there are very few restaurants where people can smoke.

Wonder what's on the menu. Amazing to see a restaurant older than my city.

With a name like that, you can't go wrong. Hope you enjoyed lunch.

It looks very good, hope the food was too. Were you drowning your sorrows after the rugby. It wasn't a good game as both sides were poor. We stand no chance against the Southern Hemispheres.

LOL I agree with Alain! :)

Wonderful picture, I like a lot the ambiance!

Such a cozy atmosphere. A nice place for lunch, especially on a snowy day. Love the mural of the stylishly dressed canine smokers.

Just wanted to check in and wish you a good day and a good week. But how could you not with that gorgeous haircut? :-)

I love the decor here Ciel, if the food was half as good, I'm guessing it was a delightful affair oui!
