This is the first restaurant on the road up to the chateau, just walk past. The quality isn't good no matter what it says outside. The are far better ones to go to.

I ordered a large salad. What arrived was inedible. A huge slab of luke warm melted cheese which was cold on one side slammed onto a piece of floppy toast on a bed of off tasting and brown edged looking lettuce and brown edged greens. Dressing was awful.

We stopped in to have lunch here and even though they were very busy, the service was excellent and friendly. The food was simple home style food in good quantity and excellent taste. The prices were a little higher , but in a tourist area this is to be expected. Overall I would rate this a good experience.

I have to say, this surprisingly turned out to be one of the most delicious meals we had over our 2 weeks in France. The restaurant is nice, not too touristy, with decent ambience and friendly service. The menu is full of good, hearty meal choices, very homemade cooking kind of options. I ordered the pork chop with honey sauce... More

There is better service and food for the price. Ok if no particular expectation. The pork was dry and the tartare was Ok ish. Fries were not as good as the presentation suggests.

Atmosphere was a bit dry, but they served up good hearty food at a reasonable price. Not a gourmet place, but no complaints!
