“Great meal and value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012 via mobile

A very traditional French dining experience. Quiet place that is obviously overlooked by many looking for a more entertaining atmosphere. Great service and food. I rate it second only to the Michelin starred La Maison Juane which costs two to three times more. I would definitely return here.

“Typical food of the region, excellently done”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

Wonderful meal had here - incredibly, we were the only people in there on a Friday lunchtime, but all the better really! The food was superb, wonderful fish dishes and a lovely local white wine that I sadly didn't write down the name of. Desserts were very good, and there seemed to be a number of dishes served between courses - amuse-bouches, little biscuits with coffee. Very nice touches.

Good service from the friendly waitress (although she didn't have much else to do)! I would definitely go back.

“French food at its best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

We dined at this restaurant tonight after we had eaten here two years ago. Nothing has changed - this at the top of the tree for its regard for the cultural side of French cuisine.
I started with a soups pistol, a superb soup of peas, beans and some exemplary cheeses.
Main course was a brilliant calamari with arttichoke, both caremelised and sweet.
I passed on the cheese but ended with the Italian tiiramisu.
With a modest price of E91.
Service was charming and the rests between courses was welcomed.
Overall one of the best meals I have experienced.

“Excellent quintessential french food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2012

Food was absolutely superb; service on the slower side but definitely not neglectful; waiter attentive; had the most amazing scallops with leeks and white cream. I am still drooling. Price is reasonable; around 100 euros for two with one bottle of the "house" wine.

“Great meal and wonderful service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2012 via mobile

We started with the server bringing tapenade, butter and bread, followed by an amuse buche. Then came an Entre of asparagus and aioli, real aioli not that thick heavy stuff you get back home. Our plats were served and were great flavours for both the fish and the duck. This is where it got fun. We ordered our deserts and in a very short time the server brought us a pre-desert and then our desert. After we finished our desert she brought us some cookies and macarons to complete the meal. You have got to try this place. It's not so fancy that you want to wear a jacket but it's got a real nice feel. Enjoy!
