Had a wonderful meal there. The service is quick and precise, a wonderful selection of meats and poultry. The waiter was friendly and gave us loads of recommendations for the food and wine. They have a fab list of French and Suisse wines.

Ironically I'm not a meat eater but my friends treated me to this lovely place and I was able to find a wonderful meal and a delightful setting that felt truly unique. This is a favorite of some of my friends in the region for good good or special occasions so I was honored they selected this for me ..

This is a meat lovers restaurant. If you are a vegetarian goodluck finding something on the menu you can eat. All meats are grilled in the center of the room. Excellent selection of meats available.

We dined in this cosy restaurant with friends! Lovely fireplace feeling on a cold autumn evening! The restaurant is known for its meat dishes. The service was a bit hectic but the meals were nice.

In this historical farm, where marvellous cheminee are preserved and in functions, you will enjoy exceptionnal meats and cool athmosphere. Great wine, top beef (and other meat as well), this address is suitable for romantic moments, family time and also for group entertainment.

When we entered this place that was built in 1565 it was astounding. There are three different eating areas. The meal is cooked over an open fire, the service is exemplary very attentive waiters and the food is divine. Go he you will not be disappointed.

Sensational grilled meats are prepared by the chef before your eyes under an enormous chimney (hence the name). The chef cooks the meat over a wood charcoal fire which imparts a wonderful smoky grilled flavor. I have had several meals here and all have been just fantastic. Good selection of local wines. I have had nearly every meat served here... More
