A very small menu, extremely well prepared. Fine flavours of the dishes. The wonderful quenelle de sandre à la bisque de langoustines was a pure delight. I really enjoy a restaurant knowing what their abilities are. Few items prepared with local products. We shall return

I really loved the way this restaurant brings dishes with a rather surprising combination of ingredients!

Had a very nice 3 course (35pp) with just one hiccup, the beef was tough. My own meal of a cockle starter, fish and a beautiful pistachio desert was good. However my wife's beef main course being tough spoiled the overall effect. Unfortunately my French...More

Great menu, nice atmosphere, tempting to eat there. But .... No wifi ! And please understand dear restaurant owner, when you dine alone, it is attractive to check your social media, etc. So I left the restaurant ultimately. I will certainly return when there's a...More

Very nice decor and very friendly staff. The menu changes every week and doesn't offer a lot of choices, that being said the choices are very high in quality. The wine selection is very good and our waitress was a wine connoisseur. I had the...More

In this instance the proper translation is terrific! The kids are terrific as what they cook...More

I went for lunch on a Saturday and was not disappointed. While the Menu a Midi was limited - it worked for me (the wine menu was much more robust). The tomato gaspacheo with cucumbers and watermelon was great (who thinks up these combinations!), even...More

What I most appreciated here was the informal, yet elegantly classy warm atmosphere and the use of local products. Inventive, open to new "exotic" influences without excess, excellent wine suggestion and amazing dessert made the whole experience memorable. The only down point in my view...More

The restaurant is very nice, with a charming yet casual atmosphere, paintings and sculptures on the walls. The menu (24€ for the evening) offers a choice of 3 different starters/main course/desert, all equally creative, appetizing, and delicious (changes every day), and a good offer of...More
