“Elegant but excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

Anybody who considers this restaurant expensive is not living in the real world.the produce on offer is amongst the nobles in France and the skill with which it is cooked is as good anywhere you will get in France and therefore by definition in the world.f you take into account on top of this the very high cost of maintaining an establishment of this kind and the high cost of labour, it is obvious that the prices are more than reasonable.clearly the reviewer who wrote about the prices understands neither food nor economics.every time I have been here , it reminds me of the fact hat restaurants this good are a dying breed, and should be treasured.the poulet de Bresse a la creme is way better than at a certain three star place up the road.and the warm family atmosphere is so welcome.i hate to see a fellow English language user trashing this place with such ignorant comments.i would rate this place as amongst the best provincial restaurants in France.

“Elegant but expensive”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

Nice location, even if a bit old style. Food is fine, but we found prices absolutely unreal. All dishes cost from 35 to 60 euros! Ok the michelin star, but You can not pay for such simple food such prices. I would not return

Bonjour,
Si les mots ont un sens: Cher ne correspond pas à Médiocre!!
Les prix chez nous à la carte s'échelonnent de 25 à 65 euros!!
Le premier menu avec double mise en bouche, une entrée, un plat, un dessert est à 36 euros!!
Si vous avez choisi à la carte( de mémoire, une poularde de Bresse à la crème et aux morilles(45€), une salade de homard bleu, asperges vertes et artichauts violets (42€)), les prix étant indiqués aussi à l'extérieur, nous n'avons trompé personne, et de votre commentaire il ressort que la cuisine était bonne!! alors ???
Que vous n'ayez pas envie de revenir chez nous, j'en suis désolé, mais il est vraiment dommage que vous ne m'ayez pas informé de tout ceci au moment même et que vous profitiez de Yripadvisor pour donner une image déformée de votre passage dans notre restaurant.
Salutations.
