A small group of 6 of us celebrated my friend's 60th birthday here in September. The food was delicious & well presented, the wine most acceptable & the desserts delectable. All this delivered with great service, in a most agreeable ambience.

We thoroughly enjoyed the first trip on Le Tour de France to La Bourgogne. Escargot, Boeuf Bourguignon and a beautiful poached pear dessert. Faultless and great value. So looking forward to the next stage la Normandie.
