Sunday lunch sitting in the sunshine, being served great food and good wine, what more can you ask for. You can of course be seated inside but when the weather is good the outside area is a must. There is little more to say except that we look forward to eating in this lovely restaurant when we return. As you... More

The menu has improved and been extended. The service is impeccable, the wine list admirable. A most enjoyable meal sitting in the courtyard under a large parasol. Make the effort to find this haven.

Staying in this area for a holiday and decided to visit this restaurant having read reviews. We started with a kir each and they were perfect. My husband is vegetarian but he had a nice goat cheese starter. But his main course was just a selection of vegetables but very well presented. I had a pate and then fish both... More

Having eaten in this restaurant before I found my second time just as good as the first. The food is cooked to the way you like it and the service is first class. Whilst it is out of the way it is worth finding it as you will not be disappointed. My friends live in the village (Frost family) and... More

Visited on a Thursday evening and was no need to book. We speak no French but the host was very friendly and helpful and translated the menu for us. Food was delicious and reasonably priced.

...it's well worth beating a path to this delightful family-run restaurant. We stopped for the lunchtime Midi menu and were surprised by the very high standard of service and presentation. The price was reasonable, the house wine very drinkable, the little unasked-for extras a pleasant surprise and we shall rtuen for a full-blown evening experience. It was really great.
