“Lovely little restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2014

Tucked away from the crowded central area around the cathedral, this little restaurant is well worth the short walk. A friendly welcome and good cuisine combine to make a memorable dinner in an intimate setting.

If as foreign visitor you're handed the English language menu, its mildly eccentric (but cute) translations mean that it would be better to ask for the French version and rely on your judgement - and a little sense of adventure!

“Small and First-rate!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014

We chose this only because it was one of the few restaurants open on a Monday, and we were not prepared for the exceptional hospitality and very, very good food! This is quite small, only a few tables, so reservations are necessary. It is an old house, about 5-10 minute walk from the cathedral. The menu is market-driven, and while not a huge number of choices, one will find something for everyone. Their wine list features wines from the region, with many excellent choices, very reasonably priced. Strongly recommended!
