Lovely and classy restaurant for families. I made an online reservation at the same day and told them my kids love pasta and when we arrived they had made pasta! The 3-course kids menu's are served on 1 plate, and the same can be done for the moms & dads. Delicious!

As always the food was very good although the portions seem to have been somewhat reduced since our last recent visit Although we know the owners quite well now after 4 years of visits the service from the new waiter was under par. He seemed unable to comprehend that of the 4 people 2 of us chose a fixed menu,... More

We stayed in this hotel and restaurant for over 2 weeks whilst work was done on our house. We ate a different menu every evening as the owners took trouble to ensure we had variety. Breakfast was good as well as dinner. The presentation and quality were excellent. I recommend the house cocktail which is a secret recipe and is... More

We had a simple dinner with friends; we arrived without a reservation but were given a table without hesitation and judging by how busy they became within an hour we were very lucky! We picked the middle range table d'hote menu which was 3 courses with amuse bouche, a sorbet and coffee; the local wines at E15 to E20 were... More

First impression were good when we booked although the person taking the booking seemed a little disinterested. The food was of very good standard, was interesting and excellently presented. Each course was well thought out... More

Dinner x4 adults - we all had totally different menus which they accommodated well. The lamb was a definite highlight. Puddings were a bit 1960s and old fashioned. Setting is slightly odd - feels like time has stood still for 20 years as does the food. Was a perfectly lovely evening with good service and good food.

We have eaten many times at this excellent restaurant. As always the quality and service were great. This review is to record how good the fixed price lunch time menu at 15 euros was. Even with a bottle of wine and coffees the total bill was only 50 euros - great value!!!!!

Nine of us visited here for a food experience and we weren't disappointed. The menu was up to standard just like the old days. We mostly ordered from the cheaper menu which was very well presented and executed. I certainly would love to go back and try the menu gastronomique.
