Le Cochon à l'oreille

Last night with a friend I tried this restaurant in the Old Town near the Thiou and Palais de l'Isle (near the taverne Maitre Kanter). And it was a nice surprise! They have a big collection of pigs (decoration) inside and outside, it is quite funny. The terrasse is really nice, quiet and has a bar as well. The dishes of course are mainly with pork (pot au feu au cochon, tartiflette, choucroute, cochon farci, ragout....) but you will also find some fish dish or salads. The food is of good quality, the service is friendly and fast in a really nice place.
