We ate turkey and fish all were very good. This is not over expensive. Service is perfect. This is far from a gastronomic restaurant but the prices are fair. We recommend strongly.

Everything was perfect tonight. We were a group of seven, more than half not speaking French. There was no English menu, but the waiter had borrowed his phone with the English menu on it. The waiter was very patient, friendly and helpful. Last but not least the food was simply great. This evening there was nice and discreet live music.... More

The restaurant layout and atmosphere were nice, but the food was lacking from what we expected. The amuse-bouche was a nice touch, there is an extensive wine selection, and while my starter was tasty, my wife's was tasteless - we were satisfied with the mains, but then the desert missed the mark too. Maybe we went on a bad day,... More

A quality restaurant at a reasonable price. Well appointed, although lacking a bit in ambience as it was nearly empty on the night we were there. Food was of a high standard and well presented. My limited French was on par with their limited English, but no great difficulty in communicating.
