An interesting carte if they could cook it. We did not want a large meal so avoided the menus. Amuse bouche of dressed fish ok. Morilles starter (€29!) lacked flavour. Main course rabbit was bitty and dry with an uninspired sauce. My fillet of beef...More

What more can you expect from a mid range price restaurant? Great food, great wine and good service in a warm and cozy atmosphere! The 25€ menu was worth the travel. No fancy dishes for sure, but plain good food.

We asked the restaurant to lay on a special Jura meal for a group of English which they did. The food was very good and the service attentive. People still talk about the gambas in a local sauce. We had the room to ourselves which...More

My colleague and I were working as geologists in the area and stumbled across this wonderful little place. We had the basic fixed price menu. Each dish was balanced, flavourful and a revelation. The service was friendly and helpful. A real gem
