- Entering Le Cardinal restaurant gives the most peculiar sensation of going downstairs into a rather upmarket public toilet. Pink bathroom tiles are on the wall and floor of a narrow staircase. You emerge into a rather bare cellar room covered with more flesh-colored tiles, sparsely decorated in a kind of canteen-gone-all-haute-cuisine style. Ghastly chairs upholstered in a fabric that Marie Antoinette would have raised her eyebrows at, and a strange two-tone hospital green and muddy red paint work give the one-roomed cellar bar an unusual atmosphere. The peculiar decor is compensated by the menu which caters to all tastes. The vegetarian menu provides an alternative to the wide selection of fish, meat, game, poultry and a section called 'Snails, frogs legs, crabs' which is for the strong in constitution. Sole, prepared in the Molnar mode - delicately grilled to just the right consistency and served with butter and lemon is a delicious and light lunch.

This place has been closed more than a decade ago!
This restaurant is not existing any more! It was very good, but closed around 1999. Was carrying a honest French cuisine... :( Of course, I could NOT visit this restaurant this month.
