Verdict: A very homey, cozy, hole-in-the-wall French eatery on Westwood Blvd. The owners/chefs are a couple hailing from Paris (Montmartre). They are super friendly, and the food at Ratata reflects their warmth. Sometimes, there is live music! It's also very reasonably priced. Note: The pace of the meal is leisurely. Overall, I recommend it.
- Mushroom soup: Aromatic homestyle soup, perfect with some bread for dipping.
-Boeuf Bourgignon: Rich, flavorful, stick-to-your-ribs type beef stew.
-Hachis Parmentier: The French equivalent of Shepherd's pie, Ratata certainly does solid version of this; one of my favorite French comfort food dishes.
