Of course, when you get food and service of this kind of quality then you expect to pay for it but we were not disappointed and the experience sitting out on the terrace overlooking the river was absolutely delightful. I couldn't find any fault with our dinner or breakfast the following day. Excellent!

Service during our entire dinner was very unbalanced. Things has been forgotten, rhythm of the service was not good either. Starter fois gras duo with compote was bland. The quality of the steak was average, our fish dish was pleasant but nothing to write home about...Plating was nothing special. Our evening was saved by the dessert which was an absolutely... More

Not quite Michelin Star quality but could attain that level. Fantastic setting especially if the weather permits dining outside on the terrace.

A beautiful location and food at the very highest level. Presentation was artistic and quality without fault. Service was surprisingly warm for such a formal setting. Celebrated my father's birthday here. A special place. Yes expensive but justified.

Wonderful location and views from the dining room. We went in the evening and I am sure on a sunny day eating on the terrace would be magical. The food, although pricey, was excellent as was the service and attentiveness of the waiters. A good wine list for all tastes and prices. Will definitely go there again for a special... More

Our gourmet meal was excellent, as was the service. And the location, on the terrace next to the Dronne River, with its lovely old waterwheel, made for a beautiful backdrop for a wonderful dinner.

Friends recommended this restaurant and we were quite eager to go. The setting is very romantic and lovely in a small, elegant 19 room hotel. We had 8:00 reservations and were escorted to the upstairs salon where we were expected to have an apéritif. We were given a small "fancy something" with it which was quite good. We were given...
