We have known this restaurant for years and dined there after a gap of eight years or so. Standards have been maintained. The 28 euro formule is marvellous value. Excellent food. Excellent service. The restaurant is rightly appreciated by local people. I strongly recommend it.

La Foret could be a restaurant that you by pass because of it's appearance. It is big, on a main road and doesn't look that special from outside. I drove past it for a few years before I was told how good it was! Since...More
