Great food, nice ambience, must try

When I asked my hotel how to get to this restaurant, his immediately response was "oh, a very good restaurant". We were not disappointed! It was located next to train station, very nice ambience and decoration. We ordered set dinner with 3 courses, starters were seafood (lobsters and shell fish... read more

This place is way over priced for the quality of the food. We were there in mid June 2015. Maybe the high ratings are from an earlier management, but it was a big disappointment. The wait staff was very strange and did not make us feel welcome. My lamb was not prepared in their kitchen, except to defrost a prepared... More

Ridiculously overpriced for what is offered. Wines in particular, ordinary at ridiculous prices. Young inexperienced staff. Not surprisingly restaurant empty except for 4 Asiatics withe a noisy baby. W recommends avoid.

I went here because I wanted something near my hotel, and reviews were fine. Food was really correct, however I feel 50 € a bit much for a 2 course dinner with a carafe wine (for 1 person). But my biggest problem was the lack of good atmosphere. We had a young guy, who seemed to be a trainee, and... More

We had two excellent meals here. It is "posh" inside and we got both an amuse-bouche pre-meal and a little Black Forest gateau afterwards.The young waitresses were very formal and clearly been trained to be so.I thought it was expensive but the quality of food was first-class. It appears to cater for tourists rather than local people, but avoids being... More

As others have mentioned, this restaurant is not terribly impressive from the outside, but inside it is an upmarket establishment with a seriously god cook. We went for the menu de Degustation, and greatly enjoyed it - the seafood dish of scallops and langoustines in particular was outstanding.

This restaurant is in very unprepossessing surroundings next to rail station and is very plain from outside. However, inside it is an elegant French restaurant, very good and friendly service but best of all is the outstanding French food at a good value. The Menu with a couple of glasses of wine for about 40€. I recommend this restaurant to... More
