We were there because it was close to the hotel we were staying. Very nice personal, good food, nice patio, a bit noisy. I would come back any time

We went there from specific recommendation for pan fried fois gras (poelle) but found it very disappointing. The piece is part of a 3 ways cooking plate of fois gras. The piece was over cooked, very thin and almost dry. It shouldn't be that way....More
