“Christmas day lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2013

We have just returned home after a four hour gastronomic delight. To eat out on Christmas day is always better than cooking at home but this meal has not only just proved that point but has created a memory that we will never forget. Cooking at the very highest level with a presentation that rivals any Michelin starred resturant. Impeccable service and wines that were well chosen by the proprietors to accompany a perfect meal. Please do not change your formula - you have added a pleasure to life here in our part of France that is impossible to beat.

“Delighted with the new owners”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

Thank goodness the previous people have left,! This is such a lovely place to eat that it was wasted with the old owners when it was Chez Alain.
The new menus are tempting, the cooking excellent and the presentation everything to please the eye. The front of house is very efficient and friendly - thoroughly recommended.
