Great attentive service, skilfully prepared meals, not too many choices. We had a lovely time, and would recommend it! So much better than the places in the square, or any of the creperies. Good wine list too!

Stayed at hotel next door and was recommended to try here. Nice little bistro with excellent service and really good food.A little off the beaten track but worth looking for. Excellent value and good wine! Suggest you book as it got busy.

Simple elegant splendid place, no more that 10 to 12 tables, so that booking is necessary. Friendly atmosphere, all the merit goes to Claudine, that is not only a nice and beautiful lady, but also a super manager. Good food, good wine: great soupe a...More

Food isn't cheap but it's really, really tasty. I had hake filet in camembert sauce and it was one of the best pieces of fish I've ever ate. Staff offers excellent customer service.
