Pretty Good

As an American couple we appreciate a place such as this that seemingly drips French culture. Teriffic ambiance and a romantic setting. However, the food does not achieve the same level. It's good, mind you, but falls a tad short of expectations. Good value & pretty good service. Try the vegetable... read more

Ambience was very nice, service was good, food was very disappointing. Bottom line is sorry to say, don't waste your money.

For the region quite frankly disappointing. The wine was the saving grace but over priced. Felt rushed in & out with little care. Menu was limited. Food was edible but uninspired, made with clearly cheap ingredients. Where was all the fantastic local produce?? Owners need to refund some pride in their food I think.

On not being able to get into our restaurant of choice, Cote Coeur, as a result of the evening event, we succeeded in securing a table at Le Credence, situated almost next door. After a warm welcome, we were shown to a table upstairs. There was a reasonable amount of choice on the fixed price menu (€22.50) including pasta, meat... More

We ate here and though the service and garden were pleasant, we thought the food and presentation were average at best, not up to the usual standard of such places in rural France.
