Habitat decor and an owner who rushes about to please all his clients. Unpretentious food, nothing to rave about but nothing to complain. Not expensive and we enjoyed the experience and would go back. We tried to speak French which was much appreciated.

Based on the reviews I was expecting a bit more of this place, the service is OK and the location is nice but the quality of what I ordered was much less than expected. I requested a risotto which was maybe one of the worst I have ever had, it seemed to me that it had already been prepared for... More

At our first attempt, this recommended restaurant was fully booked - and it was a Monday evening! We immediately booked for the following evening and fully realised why it was so popular with both locals and visitors. Great atmosphere, excellent, charming service and fabulous food. Menus available in different languages. Great value for money..so we booked a return visit then... More

Booked by our accommodation hosts, we might have given this a miss because of the touristy-looking English translations on the board outside. Glad we didn't, the food was lovely and the staff - efficient, courteous and welcoming. My French isn't bad, but I still find myself looking menu items up on the dictionary so you'll probably be pleased to hear... More

The service was quite friendly and they speak English. The meal was generally nice except the pastas. I have an intention to visit again.

From the outside the restaurant looked a bit too 'touristy' for my liking but we went in (on hotel staff recommendation) & really liked it. The staff was friendly & efficient despite a big Fri evening crowd. The steak was outstanding. Tender juicy piece of local beef served with fragrant sautéed potatoes. The beef steak tartare was very good too... More

Food: Good not great. Probably wouldn't go back. Had a millefeuille beef dish: layered steak slices with onion and tomatoes, foie gras with fig chutney, and profiteroles. Service: Good. Really good. Atmosphere: Charming, nice.
