The food is just OK but more importantly, most of the staff never smile which gives a sinister ambiance. The deco is also outdated and add to the depressing effect. Will not go again.

There was not a smile from the ovner when We arrive. The foie gras was eccellent, But the entrecote was poor. The creme brulee in tree different varities was very good.

Have eaten in this restaurant, but refuse to go again because the owner is too rude and arrogant. Plenty of tourists in the summer eat there, but she cannot afford to be complacent.
