This is a place to discover ! Husband in the kitchen and wife at the tables, you will experience the slow cocking experience. Everything there is delicious. Small but warm atmosphere. You will find also a list of exportated wines. Better call for reservation

We were visiting and staying in St. Sauveur, but felt that most of the restaurants there are crowded and a bit overpriced because of the tourist trade. We found that this restaurant was the perfect antidote , and St. Adele is only 15 minutes away...More
