A pleasant place to dine

Located in Le Meridien Hotel, with windows looking out onto the adjacent pedestrian shopping street, this very pleasant and elegant dining room has some very good, beautifully presented food.

Delicious food, really good service, warm and friendly ambiance, great location. Just a little bit expensive, but the quality has to have its price.
