Had a very pleasant dinner here. The service is corteous and promt; the food is the tasty classics of french cusine. The great thing about this place is that it stays open until late at night, contrary to most other restaurants in the area which close at about 9pm.

Both courses were disappointing, sadly my salad main course had so much oil I could not eat it all. We had an apertif each 2 starters and two salad main courses, a bottle... More

Great choice of food and drinks.Good service. Not the cheapest around but we ate and drank well and got through around €50 per head. It was a good night right down to the 'Digestifs'!

Nothing special about this restaurant even though it is filled normally. Ate oysters which made me sick the entire night. Tables are packed together in the porch area. Biggest problem were smokers who sat in the middle of the veranda and stunk up the entire restaurant. Foul smelling smoke destroyed the ambience of the meal. There should be a law... More

Sitting under the all-enclosed awning at this place is a warm experience. The directors chairs are very comfortable. The décor is chaloureux & so is the attention from the excellent Waiters. Their speciality is fine quality meat. I had an excellent burger with Comte cheese & all the trimmings, worth the detour. Their carafe wines were very good including for... More

I had a great meal here.. atmosphere excellent - wine delicious and food even better. The same can't be said for my poor girlfriend who obviously got a dodgy mussel.. (or two) and couldn't stop vomiting all night... Make your own mind up on this one...!

I ordered the salmon and it was the best I've ever had. The food and drinks were just the best. The staff were very professional and efficient however not the friendliest fella. Food took a normal amount of time to receive :) 5/5 highly recommend
