This restaurant, run by the Le Doux Nid B & B, had the best dinner. My freshly caught River Perch served with a simple mashed potatoes was the best dinner on our trip. Simple and very French.

Super-friendly staff, with nice, on-the-house welcome drinks. The setting, even on a grey day was lovely. Tasty food, reasonably priced. Grandmere's cake was delicious.
