Stopped there for a glass of wine and a platter. Located close to the church with tables outside (nice in summer) - service was very attentive.

We arrived very early in the evening after a long day travelling and were the first customers (at 6:30 p.m.).

Badly served by this wine bar. Amazing quiet location and decent cuisine, however, i had a reservation booked and was made to wait for 45 minutes to be seated.

The food menu is reasonably varied, but keep in mind this is a wine bar. Platters are good and the camembert (not on the menu) is delicious. The service is very accommodating.

Massive disappointment Barely adequate wine list and for a summer outdoor area place quite a poor Beer selection Platters are a robbery- if I wanted greens , crackers or bread I would have ordered them and not a cheese and meat ones.
