Now this was a unique experience, having lunch in a cave! The surroundings as you can imagine were unique and very elegant. The food was good and service excellent. It actually was quite large once you got inside with multiple dining rooms. Our Salmon Beurre blanc followed by Baked Alaska was memorable!

This place looks great from the moment you step into the restaurant with a huge central fire place that's more than welcoming.

We were given a small aperitif on the house to clean our palates before our meal.

Most of us opted for the fixed 4 course menu & tried carpaccio de biche(melted in the mouth) & veloutes with Italian ham(tasty vegetable purée) for aperitif.

Filet mignon du pork(meat was slightly tough but great) & Le pave de cabillaud(fish was good) for main course, along with 2 other fish dishes from the a la carte menu-st jacques which surprisingly makes me like scallops & la lotte (a fish with a smoky salty taste that I tried for the first time).

The third course was a plate of different types of cheese with confiture du vin (yes, that is actually called the jam of wine of the region). Surprisingly, I wiped my plate clean knowing that one needs to develop a taste for French cheese as some can be quite strong.

The dessert was citron creme with pistachio meringue which was really good. Didn't much like the soufflé though.

Although this place is expensive, we enjoyed ourselves in this unique Ambience with some great food & great wine!

We enjoyed a nice dinner here but were impressed with their fun manner of wine selection in La Cave...it is quite a few of the local wines, shown in their bottles and displayed in a room off the bar.

Would recommend this for the special ambience, the lovely fireplaces and good food. It has historical significance and interesting architecture.

I was with a tour group of 20, and we had a set menu at this restaurant. The setting was very nice, but I did not care for the food. The restaurant was fairly crowded but the service was fine. I saw a yummy looking cheese tray! Wish I could have had that.
