Scrumptious and decent meals and wines only here. You may feel a little bit ackward if you are not used to this level of luxury but it makes you discover French culture at its best !

I liked the food but the service was awful. I recommend the chicken and potatoes, but avoid François the waiter who was rude to me.-

What's there not to love? Fantastic food with range of set menus depending on budget or taste. Fantastically friendly and helpful staff. The wine list is more like a wine encyclopaedia . Not to be missed!

Excellent meal having chosen one of the set menus. Wine reasonably priced for a good quality and service really attentive but not intrusive. Need to book as full on Friday night. Highly recommended and close to town centre.

Very very very friendly and helpful staff. Pleasant ambiance in a cosy home-like environment. Top food. Very good wines. Parking is rather difficult, so just go a little bit up the hill for this.
