On the advice of our hotelier we dined here. It was busy but the service was quick and friendly. The number of dishes on the menu indicated that care is taken to provide a comprehensive but not overwhelming menu. A very pleasant place to dine.

We spent an idyllic afternoon in "La Venise Verte" last August and I returned again this summer to spend a few more pleasant hours. Marais Poitevin, and in particular, Coulon and Arcais are very pictureesque and can be thoroughly recommended.
