On paying the bill, we received... More

At the time of year, the restaurant wasn't very busy and contrary to some of the reviews on here, we did get an attentive and friendly service. The food was good but sometimes lacked something and presentation was one of them. The menu in itself is the first reminder of something lacking. The couvert was perfect with a traditional selection... More

We regularly eat at this restaurant every time we visit the region. The manger is a really friendly person and knows how to take care of his customers. Recommend this restaurant for dinner.

Menu geared towards fish lovers, but several meat dishes to choose from. Very well run restaurant with friendly and knowledgeable staff. Quite busy, but this didn't slow the service. Visited at the end of our stay, otherwise would have returned.
