Excellent meal, slightly spoilt by an inflexible menu.

This place had been recommended to us by friends who had been for lunch. We went in the evening and were tempted by the Menu Gourmand at 59 euro, except that my wife did not want Magret de Canard as main course. There was no second choice for any dish. We asked if just for one of us, this dish... read more

We enjoyed a very good meal at this restaurant. It was a very warm night but we were comfortable sitting on the spacious terrace. The service was friendly and efficient and we were able with ease to stop the waiters from emptying our bottle of wine into our glasses within the first five minutes! Not always easy. We ate stuffed... More

The restuarant was recommended by our friends who live locally and didn't disappoint.great time and detail was paid to helping us with the menu and translating the tricky bits for my mother in law. The quality was of the highest standard and look forward to a visit on our next trip. David From Carnoustie,Scotland

Have been there for lunch and had the lunch offer for 26€ (April 2015). Very nice choice between three different starters, main courses and desserts! We took a Salade Niçoise a really nice 'revisited' version, with tuna-fish in oil as well as warm cubes freshly pan fried and a delightful dressing. For the main course we had the salmon brochestte,... More

I booked this after reading the great reviews on trip advisor. Unfortunately my family doesn't particularly appreciate fine dining so this was probably my first mistake. The service was excellent as would be expected and the atmosphere was nice. However even I found the food to be too elaborate and the various sauces overpowered the flavour of the ingredients which... More

I finally got a chance to taste this cuisine. Perfect rendition of each dish on the gourmet menu. I could not believe the flavors, the delicate touch, the expression of the ingredients. Impeccable service and just the right atmosphere. These people know food/restaurant. You must go.

This was a anniversary dinner so we didn't mind the price. That said compared with UK prices this was good value for the quality of food. The staff were welcoming and friendly but not intrusive. We had the set menu €48 which was delicious. As others have mentioned the Wine is not cheap but excellent. Fantastic beef. Definitely worth a... More

We had the E48 menu which was really good but it would otherwise have been quite an expensive night! If you want a bottle of wine, prices start for a half bottle at E40 for example. However, food is really good and we have now eaten here on a number of occasions and always had both great service and food.... More

We visited this restaurant with friends on a recommendation. We went for Easter Sunday lunch. It was a wonderful lunch from start to finish. We were made very welcome - there was a pleasant relaxed atmosphere. We had the gourmet menu and it was superb. Beautifully presented and it all tasted divine! We will definitely be going back as soon... More
