We chose this place because it was well rated and close to the Tourist Office. The experience was smooth and the plat of the day delicious. The place has a pub-like feel and a wide-range of local ciders and calvados. I would go back.

Overall, an excellent experience! The owner came to our table and discussed all of our options. He made excellent recommendations. He has an incredible wine cellar, and it’s reasonably priced. The food was outstanding!

The food was good, the set menu was more than we could eat but not really exceptional, but the choice of wines and the knowledge of the waiter was amazing. Definitely a place to visit if you love wine.
