Too many dishes on the menu

We ended up here because it is August and most restaurants are closed. The place is well-located and the staff were friendly and welcoming. The problem is that there are so many dishes on both the printed menu and the daily specials board that it is not humanly possible to cook any of them fresh... read more

I ate my favourite steak et frites with salad and downed with a carafe of vin rouge. The food and service were excellent and the ambience reasonable considering that I sat adjacent to the street.

A pleasant atmosphere and the food was good - rustic-style dishes to go with the quirky rustic-style decor. I had the cocotte of lambs sweetbreads followed by calves liver - both were good.

I ate at this restaurant a few days ago as a solo traveller. I had previously walked past on the Friday night and only seen two couples eating and that put me off. I decided to bite the bullet as the restaurant was recommended by the Hotel De Paris and re-visited on the Saturday and was shown round to a... More

Thierry at Hotel de Paris (wonderful hotel) recommended this restaurant and we were not disappointed. Excellent food, great service and excellent value for money. The cow on the roof was exactly that too.

This restaurant was recommended to us - and it appeared a brilliant indeed. Good portions, delicious meals, attentive staff and reasonable prices - all this marks this restaurant out of many we've tried during this trip around France. Original design as well.
