Le Bistrot de Pépé Gentil

Bistro in Boucan Canot

This much-lauded venture with a vintage feel serves a range of culinary delights that deliciously represent French bistro cooking. The ris de veau (veal sweetbreads) and sole meunière (sole sautéed in butter and garnished with lemon and parsley) are two specialities to look for, though the menu is in constant flux according to markets and seasons.

Its location on a nondescript square is nothing to write home about; the real clinchers are the food and the civilised atmosphere.
