Compulsory to try the "Potence flambée au whisky". The beef is tender and the side of french fries, delicious. There is also a decent wine selection and some fish options.

The meat was tender and tasty. Kids and adults enjoyed it greatly. Deserts were weak, nothing special.

We started with a very nice salad and the main course of beef arrived with a flourish. The meat was tender, juicy, and the drippings flavored the rice, and we also had french fries as well. A very good meal and very efficient service.
