This is one of 4 restaurants who share the square. We had lunch there and only 2 of the 4 resraurants had guests. Lunch was a choice of 2 main plates. We chose duck breast and it was excellent. I think this is a husband and wife operation and they have things running very well - really nice food and... More

This was a birthday celebration & the five of us all agreed it was very special as the surroundings, the food & the ambience were all excellent. The set menus at €23 & €25 had lots of lovely choices, three courses so good value. Sitting outside in the square on a warm evening, watching the world go by & eating... More

We had a really nice dinner here. All 5 of us ordered a different dish, and all was very good at a very good price level. We can recommend it. Nice owners, great location on a romantic square.

We visited the restaurant twice - once for lunch (which was fine) and once in evening. The staff were lovely and friendly and the menu offered a good selection. Portions were a good size and the overall cost of meals were reasonable ( if that is possible in France!). We sat outside in the square during lunch which was lovely... More

We went dining together with our 8 year old daughter and had a great time. The restaurant is not expensive but the food has that special touch you have in restaurants with stars. We were there on a rather cold evening and could not eat on their terrace, but that will be for the next time !

We ate here based on prior reviews and were not disappointed. In all honesty, we were initially a bit turned off by the locale (a rather dingy square) and the restaurant's interior, which has a sort of tacky Hawaiian feel. The menu itself also looked a bit odd. Kangaroo! Wasabi! However, don't be deterred by these things as the food... More

its in a square that is shared by other resteraunts so you have to be careful where you sit. Its a lovely setting though with the tables under the trees. The menu had a great choice and I thought it was beautifully cooked and presented with good fresh vegetables and very tender meat. Excellent choices of puddings too so whilst... More

This is the sort of restaurant that you always hope to find in France. Dining in a square of magnolia trees and a husband and wife team who run front of house and the kitchen. And who care about their cooking and presentation and then take a genuine interest in what you would like. It really is what dining in... More

We had booked for our family of 6, by email, in English, the day before, but arrived late and were still greeted warmly by Isabelle. The restaurant shares the small pretty square with several others and all have their tables arranged around the fountain. The menu is relatively simple but we found it hard to choose and had very patient... More
