In spite of the reviews, we liked its position in the middle of the town. The initial service was very fast but my Risotto St Jacques was too al denté for me and it contained 6-8 scallops, rice and the sauce - no other items...More

Very rude staff, the elderly couple especially the lady, who made us wait at least 1hr to order the food and would prefer to smoke or have a drink instead of looking after us. It took forever to get the meal, which was rather bland,...More

It is not difficult to pause sufficiently long enough to listen to what is being ordered, to walk away while the customer is still trying to order is ignorance personified. On being served what we had not ordered with no napkins, the correct amount of...More

Yesterday I had lunch here as part of a wine tour. The chicken risotto was very good. Two people had the beef stew special, which they said was good. We shared a bottle of nice local wine. The town is very nice too.

Were there with our wine tour group for lunch. As such all service was done en masse. It took a while for the food and drinks to arrive. But the food was good and of sufficient quantity. Caution: do not order the steak tartare. One...More
