Simple menu with 5 main dishes, we tried three of them (pork, beef and goat leg), all excellent. All food and wine locally produced. Very friendly and attentive staff. All other guests seemed to be happy with their meals.

One of the best meals we have had this year. We enjoyed goat casserole and Rose Roi pork: the vegetable bake served with the pork was particularly good. Home made ice-cream was luscious. Flexible set-menu, choice of two or three courses. Wines by the glass were good too. We were sorry time allowed for only one visit.

The fish and wine are excellent here and it was just around the corner from Le Manoir Saint Thomas. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable

It is difficult to review this restaurant. My wife had escargot, which was absolutely delicious, but four hours later she was vomiting uncontrollably for most of the night. I had goat leg casserole cooked in red wine, and it was nearly inedible. It tasted like vinegar. I told the owner and he admitted that there were a few complaints about... More

I had a good meal but unfortunately my wife's Coq-Au-Vin seemed burned to her. I had fish and it was excellent.

This place is terrific. The night we had dinner here it seemed we were the only non-locals, and every table was full. We had the goat stew and the roasted guinea hen, and both were fabulous. We'd been traveling in France for several weeks, and it was a relief not to have the same dishes we'd been eating at every... More

The menu had some unusual items such as goat and ell. My wife had a more traditional meal and loved it. I tried the ell but would not do it again. May just be my tastes but did not care for it. Otherwise the service and staff were very good.

Found this gem on a Monday night on recommendation. Great produce, excellent young chef, complimentary amuse bouche with an incredible mushroom mousse. Service was excellent and great wine suggested by the maitre de. Definitely worth finding

Nothing special to report about this restaurant. Food was adequate and well prepared. Ranked very average in our two week vacation. Service was good, but the room felt a bit cold and uninviting. A bit disappointing with the reviews we read.

Two couples 9 O'clock and the food was disappointing with the only "good dish" being the beef which requires a 13 euro supplement and is consequently exorbitant. Service good environment pleasant but not either especially good or good value. It is conceivable we were there on a bad night
