Service excellent, quick considering we were a large group. Food excellent, well presented and hot. 8 euro house wine by the bottle was palatable. The menu offered fir the group was a selection of 2 starters, 2 main menus and 2 desserts. 3 courses 28 euros. Food tasty, would definitely go again.

Decided to try this Michelin recommended restaurant as it's quite near our hotel. Got there about 7:30pm and the place was deserted but it was full by the time we finished. The initial greeting was a bit cool and impersonal, but they improved slightly as the night progressed. We opted for the 28€ 3-course set menu, which offered some interesting... More

A large, but well laid out retaurant with subdued lighting. Service was efficient but somewhat impersonal.

ArchiDona forms part of the building housing Hotel des Quatrans - close to the City centre and very convenient for the hotel residents for whom there's a reduction! I suppose you'd call it nouvelle cuisine with smallish portions but this is not an issue for me. The food is very well and 'artistically' presented. Do not be fooled by appearances.... More
