Three of us came for dinner in the last night of our vacation. It was a fantastic meal - great, interesting flavors well prepared. We had both the E40 and E55 menus, everything was great - the beef filet with truffle sauce, perfectly prepared dorade, all the starters (incl. delicious foie gras.) Really nice (and reasonable) bottle of St. Joseph... More

Pristine tablecloths, delicious food, welcoming, friendly staff. Pity we only discovered this restaurant on our last night in Le Tignet because we would have dined there again.

The new owner gave the restaurant a new name and gave us a complete new experience. It is a modern and creative cuisine with lots of nice surprises in the food combinations and presentation of the dishes. We were served by three different waiters of which two were good and friendly and one had the typical French attitude (c'est impossible).... More

Last night was our second visit and it will be our last. Based on our first visit we took friends from the UK but the evening was a great disappointment. To begin with, all four napkins were damp and had to be replaced. In general the food was very good, in particular the tuna starter and the monkfish in curry... More

Great food, beautifully presented and attentive service. It seemed like a lot of care and attention had been made to detail and I enjoyed a mixture of exciting flavours. Great ambience though lighting could have been a bit lower for my liking.

The first time I visited this restaurant was in 1975. At that time it was one of the few restaurants in le Tignet. Over the years whilst being reliable, the place had become a little world-weary. We returned for lunch this week, and what a difference! Still the same familiar surroundings, but new menu, attentive staff, fresh white tablecloths, shining... More
