In calling to book the reservation, the reception was so friendly and helpful that I already was predisposed to expecting good things and sure enough, as things turned out, I ended up delighted to have eaten here. The hostess was absolutely wonderful, explained the menu...More

Back with a vengeance, or rather a gusto, after two years, we found ourselves in the same place at the same time at lunch. This time around, we thoroughly enjoyed it just as the first time. We had between us a Greek salad and foie...More

We enjoyed dining in the small shaded terrace, off the street. We liked the lamb shank (souris d’agneau), which was traditional and excellent, and filet of dorade royale, a delicious sauteed fish, served on risotto. They have a good wine list, with Loire wines in...More

Location is good. Service is good. Food was bland. Had crispy cheese for started. Not much taste. Lamb was ok. Banana dessert poor. The chocolate mousse was tasteless. Overall I felt it did not live up to the reviews and as such was very overpriced.

This is a very popular restaurant, and reservations are necessary. The staff is extremely friendly, attentive without rushing, and speaks English. The food is excellent, and the prices are very moderate. The wine recommendations are very good. We would have returned the following day, but...More

Small restaurant in the centre of the town. Very friendly service; lovely food; made to feel very welcome. Excellent wine list. Reasonable prices. All in all a great small restaurant which well deserves its rating.

We saw this restaurant was number 1 on Trip Advisor and thought we'd chance it and see if we could get in. It was quite quiet when we arrived at about 7.15pm so got a table easily enough, but it did get busier a bit...More

This was booked by the owner of the hotel we were staying in. What a superb meal. The food was amazing, staff were polite and professional. Definitely a place to go back to. Suggest you book as it gets very busy.

Sunday lunch is 1200 - 1400. Highly recommend the foie gras appetizer and the lamb shank or fish, along with the wines recommended by Frederic. You won't regret it.
