Atmosphere - 5 stars
Food - 3 stars
Service - 4 stars
Background - Yelp lead us to this place.
Atmosphere - Located on a small street that was filled with restaurants. Rustic, this single word describes the place perfectly. Maybe tight does too, we had to move the table to get in and out.
Drink - Carlsberg beer from a bottle.
Dinner - Gratin d'andouillette du "Pere Fillion", or in English Chitterling's pork sausage in gratin with mustard sauce. I have to say I never had this before. When I received my meal it was really not what I was expecting the potatoes where shredded and made into a pie. I single slice sat in the middle of the hot bowl. The pork and mustard combo was poured in around the gratin. It seemed more like small slivers of pulled pork than sausage. I love a good mustard but in this dish it was over powering.
Dessert - Chocolate mousse, very rich but that is how it should be down.
Service - Two men were running the front of the house. It might be small but the place was packed. Neither spoke English but we all managed to get by.
Future - Sure.
I loved this place. Straight up loved. Came here on a Sunday. And despite my French consisting of "please" and "thank you" they were super nice. The chef came out twice to make sure everybody was happy and doing well.
The omelette appetizer in crayfish sauce was otherworldly. Omelette was fluffy and light and the sauce was rich and luxurious. I used all the bread to eat every last bit of the sauce. And when the chef saw that I had some extra sauce he encouraged me to eat it all and brought me some extra bread. They were also quick to refill the great wine on tap that they had. Very reasonably priced too.
For my main dish, I had pork. It was simmered in another amazing sauce and served with potatoes. Truly decadent. I licked my fingers. After that was the cheese. St. Marcellin. Now I already liked cheese, but this was unreal. So good that I got it at every other restaurant that served it. However Aux Trois Cochons was the most generous with their portion.
I want to go back like now.
