Such a lovely setting but we were informed upon our arrival that the restaurant was permanently closed since June 2017! I suppose they are still available for private functions but not really sure about that either.

We have been there with a group for lunch. The main course was presented as a buffet. All dishes were excellently prepared. The main course was lamb. Very nice dessert : cake with home-made ice cream. Wines by the glass and beers are rather expensive.
