Attractive (and a little uneven)

We had a couple of evening meals here, and generally enjoyed them. One slight problem was the variation in quantity. One evening my wife had an enormous knuckle of lamb, while I had a delicious, but very modest, portion of hake. However, we had no complaints about the cooking, and still less... read more

Some less usual dishes on the menu. I love lambs kidneys, never had them this way before in a small pan of a cream and wine sauce. One snag for me, wine bytheglass - poor choice - wine by the bottle better,but no carafes or ½ bottles

Went there really because of its proximity to the hotel and also because of what we had read. But the menu & a la carte items were all appealing and seemed like value for money. Fish, lamb, and tartare were had, all delicious. The steak on another table looked equally delicious. Wine was very reasonable, the house wine perfectly acceptable... More

Despite an efficient and friendly service, food is less than average : no real flavour, no innovation, no surprise.... The dish I've chosen was supposed to be an "excptionnal piece" at +25€ = wlid river fish in a white butter sauce. Well, I'm making a lot better one myself.... The wine list is also expensive, the average bottle is between... More

Taken here by friends on a Saturday evening. Excellent choice. Friendly efficient service and food that not only looked good on the plate but also tasted superb. Can recommend the Tatin d'oignons and a really yummy traditional crème brûlée.

We went to this place for lunch (my parents, niece, nephew and I), mostly because my parents had already been to this place once and wanted to go again. The food was excellent and the waitress was really nice. I'd definitely recommend this place, loved it. Access info for the disabled: As far as I remember you have to go... More

Visited here last week and the food was really very good. We arrived at around 7.30 in the evening and were the first there but it soon filled up - it did look like there was one waiter and he was doing a superb juggling act! We couldn't complain about anything other than feeling slightly uncomfortable after all the food!

Great flavours and wonderful food. Onion soup is superb and I can recommend almost every course. The Charolais beef however can be a little tough, as grass fed beef can be.. The restaurant decor is a little drab and no English is spoken or understood.

We went in search of a restaurant close to our hotel as one of us wasn’t very mobile. This restaurant is located in a pedestrian lane alongside a couple of nice looking bars and caught our attention with its nice front and busy look as well as appetizing menu. We were given a nice table inside and time to peruse... More
