This restaurant was just outside our hotel so we came in for a dinner after our arrival. We had a lovely meal, an amazing house salad, and a steak with pasta on a side.

We had a wonderful lunch here. The bread service featured rolls and croissants. The croissants were better than most you’ll have in Paris . My husband had bow tie pasta with egg and prosciutto which was good. I had the three cheese ravioli with white...More

We had dinner here the other night. And though it is absolutely lovely and the atmosphere great, we felt the menu does not reflect the innovative ideas of ‘Gaston’. As his involvement in the development of the menu is mentioned everywhere, we expected a bit...More

My second time here in the last 5 years and it really once again smashed expectations. We ordered plate by plate so as to enjoy a long and leisurely Sunday lunch with the window view of the monastery buildings. Service is relaxed so make sure...More

Beautiful Italian dinner! Service is very good. There are so many good dishes you don't know what to choose! Risotto is a very good choice. The Sauvignon Blanc is nice. Treat yourself and go here.

We enjoyed our diner, good prepared and well served. The prices were a bit high, the service a bit slowish, may be due to to many waiters around? Anyhow, absoluty a good restaurant to go for diner!

Good, solid restaurant. Busy with business people and tourists at lunchtime unlike most other places in town the week after Easter. Immense salad starter with superb dressing and then excellent seafood risotto. Staff correct but not especially helpful/friendly. Pudding menu looked great but didn't try.
