  • la petanque montage

    La Pétanque is the fourth venue by Le Café des Stagiaires. Keeping the same relax and cozy atmosphere and spirit as the three other Cafés, La Pétanque is more food oriented. The inspiration for La Pétanque menu is a balance between Mediterranean and Asian food, from fried anchovies, tortilla with salmojero, saffron risotto with baby lamb shank, goat cheese cake to ginger crème brulée. As for drinks, it is obvious that we could not open a new place without our faithful partners Pastis, Chouffe and Vedett. Our wine list will be diversified with products coming from Spain, Chile, Argentina…

    The restaurant will keep the same atmosphere and spirit as our three ‘Café des Stagiaires’ but with the chance to sit down at a table and enjoy a delicious meal with friends and family.

    Playing pétanque will be the nice and fun add-on to your aperitif before having diner or even while you are having your dessert.
