This restaurant is charming. Family own and attended. They pay attention to every detail. It is on the expensive side but you get what you pay for. Food is classic French cuisine and well executed. Really, great evening, nothing bad to say.

Quiet, out of the way place. Very good atmosphere. Small size restaurant makes it less noisy, more romantic. Service is top level. Quantity and quality of food is perfect with a very good presentation. Staff interactions with customers are very good and timely.

Wonderful authentic French cuisine family restaurant. Nestled in an enchanted-forest setting, old world building with large stone fireplace set the tone for an amazing romantic dinner, or family gatherings. The food is excellent, the personnel is warm and professional. Highly recommend!

Rustic ambience very french, servers do speak some English and do help with the menu. Food is excellent some seasonal dishes and a seafood menu. Home made chocolates you can purchase as well. We will return, drove over 100 klms to enjoy the cuisine.
