As a starter, I had a croustillant of escargot and crevettes, beautifully presented with excellent flavor. I have never had a fish dish prepared with so much flavor and so many flavors never tasted. The fish was maigre, served with two strips of leeks, haricots...More

We booked through the Michelin website but the booking was lost so we were seated in a below average bistro area instead of the dining room. For a Michelin restaurant it would have been better to have been turned away given how much ambience adds...More
