It was nice but I couldn’t say excellent. Food was ok, quite quick service. Very small place and lots of people. Price for food is definitely good (main course 16 euro)

We were recommended to try here by the receptionist at our hotel. What a find! All courses were spectacular and very reasonably priced. The tuna was cooked to perfection and so was the duck! Service really good and waiter spoke good English. Highly recommended!

We dined here this August on our Road Trip through France. The service was very attentive. Our food was well cooked. Especially the deserts were unique, for example a mini creme brulee.

The menu was not huge, but contained interesting dishes at a reasonable price. We chose duck with a sauce, and filet of veal, also with a sauce. Both dishes were quickly served and very tasty indeed. We had draught beer to go with the meal....More
