In Thomassin 25, towards Nan Bwa Pen, Walter, a Swiss cook based inHaiti for several decades, welcomed us in his restaurant which doesn't have a sign, as if he didn't need one to exist. Les Trois tables, an excellent combination in a flowery terrace and a brightly colored bistro hall perfectly decorated to make it  very intimate. With just over three tables, six to be exact, being welcomed is easy and family friendly. Jean Euphle Milcé
