We ate here on a Sunday night, when most restaurants in the area were closed. Our hotel made this recommendation. The night before, I at a Michelin 1-star restaurant (in another city). That said, the food here was good. Nothing fancy, just good food for a fair price. The wine was good too. They have a chalkboard with the nightly... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant by chance after walking by. What a fantastic place. We love the way the room is decorated like a farmyard. Never seen anything like it! The best thing about this restaurant is the menu. We both went for the signature dish (steak with the Vache au Plaford sauce), served 'bleu/saignant', and it was as expected... More

My husband and I ate here after the hotel recommended it. Busy atmosphere, lots of choice on menu..all in French so was a slight gamble as ours is basic. Both had rumpsteak for €12.50 followed by the cafe gourmand trio of dessert which was lovely! €5.80. Very reasonable price for generous quantity. Would recommend!

The interior of the restaurant is quite querky, but very comfortable. The food and wine was beautiful and the service was fast and friendly. Obviously very popular with the locals as well.

Excellent choice on menu, quality of food was excellent. Prices very reasonable. We ate here for the duration of our stay as we did not want to be disappointed with another choice of restaurant.

The restaurant was recommended by the hotel we were staying in. They have a large comprehensive menu on offer which tends to put me off, but the food is ok, reasonably priced, and the staff are very friendly. You can get a great Gaelic Coffee to finish, eases the bill!!

We are no wine experts and asked for a simple housewine. They showed us then the huge wine-card. We were not sure and we decided then to take only a small bottle and left the choice to the garçon, after we let him know that we could not choose. We got a half bottle for 17 euro, it was a... More

Quirky venue with huge menu and then the specials board was even bigger. Staff while not speaking much English were very helpful and we had a wonderful night. Deserts were amazing leave room for one of the specials

My wife and I have eaten here twice at noontime. The Visa office is nearby (OFII) and we took this opportunity before our interviews to have an enjoyable meal. The confit de canard and steak tartar were excellent. I found it amusing that we were warned the tartar would be raw and then even more amusing at the server's reaction... More
