A quiet night

We were the only diners so we had undivided service. The food was from the tourist menu, I tried cassoulet about 20 years ago and was not impressed but I thought, give it another go, and I'm still not impressed but it was hot and nicely served and I suspect would have tasted the same from any... read more

Service was superb even down to trying to find the best table for us. Food was of a consistently high standard. Even the house wine was of a really good quality

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel and we ate there 3 times because it was so good. Very reasonable prices for excellent food. The Cremant was good too!

If you don't mind waiting one entire hour before any item of food appears on your table, then go ahead and eat here. How was the food? Not worth the three hour ordeal.

We ate dinner in a lovely atmospheric garden. The cold tomatoe soup with basil sorbet was fantastic & a really good goats cheese salad. The duck cassoulet was nice but it was probably better to share this and also have the fish option. Ice cream lovely but the tarte tatin was a little too sweet for our taste. Service was... More

Pretty surroundings but the totally disinterested service really lets this place down. We waited over 20 minutes for a menu and had to wave and try hard to get the attention of a waiter or waitress as the dinner went on, and it was not busy. Towards the end of the meal we realised that most of the staff were... More

This restaurant is not easy to find as it is tucked away off the street and is accessed via a passageway next to another restaurant. We dined here twice but due to the weather we had to sit inside both times so we could not experience the garden of its name. The staff were very attentive and helpful and spoke... More

You have to search this restaurant out a bit because it does not have an outdoor patio on the street. Go through the small front door and the inside café and you are transported into this utterly lovely hideaway walled garden. I felt like I had stepped back in time because it was so tranquil. The food is delicious. We... More

I am surprised to read two recent reviews which were so negative. We booked a table at this lovely restaurant last week, dinined in the garden and the waiter could not have been more polite and helpful - add to this, I enjoyed one of the best creme brulees I have had in a long time. Everything else we ate... More
