One of our party had pre-booked a table for 5 at 19:30. We arrived exactly on time only to be told that there was no booking. In the heat of the moment the person who made the booking could not find the email confirmation. The...More

We were very negatively surprised by this restaurant. Although my escargot cassoulet was unusual and OK and although my veal with carrots, broccoli, and asparagus was OK, my wife’s lamb was extremely fatty and had a strangely SWEET sauce. The real problem was the almost...More

The whole family truly enjoyed the excellent French food served in that restaurant. The lamb (souris d'agneau) was out of the world. The chicken and the beef were excellent. The chocolate cake (marquise au chocolat) and the apple tart (tarte fine aux pommes) were absolutely...More

My wife and I had dinner here after a long day of touring. The service and meal were excellent. We had reservations, but they were not overly busy mid week. The seafood and wine were just the remedy after a long day.

We choose it because it was the only one were we got a table on a Saturday night. Small restaurant, seems less glamorous than the ones surrounding, but we were positively surprised by the food. Maybe not delicatessen, but good quality/price relation taking into account...More
