Fine dining but also caters to foreign tourists. Excellent service and food. Felt right at home with excellent wait staff. Super quality food with nice menu and good wine selection. Additionally, super cheese selection.

We took the full menu which proved to be too much of an excellent thing! Pate du fois canard guinea fowl and risotto all very tasty. Cheese plate had excellent assortment. Desert was delicious but finished us off!
