We ate here with our 3 children, the waitress took the trouble to explain the daily menu to us and to them, making sure we all understood what we were ordering. We ate a delicious gazpacho and steak and the children had croque monsieur with...More

We ate lunch here, having visited the Chateau. Although we had already identified this as a possible venue from previous reviews, we chose to walk around the village to view others and potential menus. Quite simply, this had the best ambiance and, while the menu...More

Formule lunch here, sitting at an outside table was letter-perfect in terms of the whole Bistro experience. Gazpacho and smoked salmon starters were both generous portions (and delicious); veal ragout with rice and ratatouille-flavours was excellent and good old steak frites right up there with...More
