Nice but $$$$

We visited the restaurant last week, actually by mistake because we confused it with one with a similar name. The place is sweet, with a little outside terrace and a few tables inside. The menu in French is on a board and we did not get much help with translation into English. We tried a few... read more

We came in 10 minutes late and the waiter was extremely rude to us during the whole diner. They only serve 5 different main dishes and didn't have 2 of them.

Since I went there... More

We had two creative starters with traditional ingrédients including the tartar. Mains were fish and the entrecôte, both were well served and tasty. The environment is clean, traditional and pleasant. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable.

Really brilliant dinner, the waiter and chef are excellent, and the interior is intimate. We went in winter so ate indoors, can't wait to visit in Summer and try the terrace! Very happy to have this as a local eatery!
