Deserving of its 1st ranking on here. Welcoming and warm hosts providing local, honest ingredients and dishes. The lamb was superb, check out the photo. Only problem is a mere 12 tables, so booking even mid week is essential.

Had great dinner, the owner is lovely and authentic. Good food and just about right in size, tiramisu is quite different to what you would expect, but fresh if your up for something different! No frains, just plain and good taste!

First evening we had the dinner menu, great value for money. All courses were excellent and me and my 10yo daughter both appreciated a lot. Next evening we came for the aperitif and enjoyed the tapas: highly recommended the camembert rôti and flambé au Calvados.
