Very cosy and snug restaurant, only seats about 40. When we were looking for somewhere to eat just the look of the big old doors looked intriguing.
When we booked there were two staff serving but the two nights we ate there just the one man was on duty. The pace at which he worked was a lesson to many waiters, never a wasted moment. The empty carafe of wine was replaced with a full one in a blur of a few seconds. Quite entertaining, but we didn't feel rushed.
Menu was mainly Savoyard. Charley's Crust was a novel local dish. Bread soaked in wine, with melted cheese, ham, pear and a fried egg on top. Served with green salad and more ham. Sounds a bit strange but it was delicious. The duck was also particularly good. All main courses were enjoyed.
Only had desserts the first night as we felt that they were only average on first night.
Would not hesitate to go again for the main courses and the setting/atmosphere.
Booking essential as popular.
