First attempt with my wife in this fantastic restaurant. We heard a lot of positive things about it before, but never managed to make a reservation (often full on week-ends). We went during the week and booked at the restaurant (you can also book at the café which has a more simple menu, but we haven't tried yet) and everything... More

Had lunch in the restaurant (not in the café). We had a beautiful salad and filets de perche. They were excellent and tastefully presented. Really, a traditional dish revisited. My friend, who can't have certain condiments got the vinaigrette and main dish as she wished - and with a smile. I had a look at the menu and I will... More

Had a very expensive banquet. Amuse Bouche was too salty. Carpaccio was absolutely outstanding. Don't normally order fish but this was quite nicely cooked. Sorbets were too much in terms of variety and quantity - my favourite was pear, least favourite citron, which was way too sour. Complimentary biscuits at the end, but I'm not a huge biscuit person. Wine... More

This was a great experience. The terrace is cosy and fresh and the service was professional and friendly. I had the buffala tomato salad as a starter and it was very well served and good. As a main dish I had the foie gras burger and it was AMAZING!!! To accompany all of that I had a glass of Monbazillac... More

Very pricy and the day we went there were no fillets de perche. The service was ok but minimalist rather like the food on the plate. What there was was tasty. I would not go again.

A friend of mine had wanted to try this restaurant for some time so we went there for our Christmas treat but I was very disappointed. Poor décor, lighting and atmosphere and the food was acceptable but no more and very overpriced. They did not ask how well the meat should be cooked and my friend sent it back as... More

Very nice and warm welcome in this family owned restaurant. The café (as you enter) is traditional with a touch of modernness and the restaurant in the back has a nice natural lighting and atmosphere. Good and spacious seating. The food quality is really good, mostly done with local products and prepared by the Chef Jean-Luc Vermorel. I'd particularly recommend... More

This is worth it. One of the best meals I have ever had. The taste is faultless, but the presentation is just fabulous!!! For special occasions when you really want to splurge and treat yourself and loved ones.
