A small, high quality, family run restaurant. We were looked after in an unhurried and helpful way by one of the partners, who explained the menu items to us. The local wines complemented the food, and the ambience and value was outstanding.

Good restaurant although a little pricey for the level of food served. Service was good as was the food but I would not choose from the 32 euro menu again.

We decided to check out this nice looking restaurant after a hard day chateau hopping through the Loire Valley. I wish we'd gone to McDonalds. My husband and I each had a 3 course meal - and each of the 6 dishes was consistent in...More
