We did not get the chance to sample their food but were shocked at the unfriendly response of the lady in charge when we asked if we could dine there. The restaurant was full and we asked if we could come at a later time, but we were more or less verbally attacked how we dared to ask. We speak... More

A wonderful meal, lots of choice and the lady in charge was very friendly and welcoming. She did recommend the wines to us, and both the rose and the red were excellent and not too expensive. Our bill was 60€ in total for the two of us, which was very reasonable given the quality of both the food and wine.

We were warmly welcomed by Madame Sylvie. She and her staff were attentive all evening despite the restaurant being full, inside and out. The food was excellent with most of us opting for the salmon tartare (a mixture of chopped fresh and smoked), bavette steak, ending with an orange crème brûlée. This being the evening of music throughout France we... More

We booked a large group meal here at short notice and were given good choices and a good price. Food well presented and lives up to the description on the menu. Restaurant always seems to be busy and we were lucky to get in.

This was a perfect place to eat French style. Family owned and run. Worth every penny. They looked after me like I was a family friend and nothing was too much trouble. All the or their guests were French which of course says a lot for it.

Found this restaurant as it was the first on the left after we crossed from the station. Food was very tasty and well presented. Allowed myself to be talked in to a half bottle of local red - well worthwhile. Madam and staff attentive, helpful, happy and humerous. Lovely atmosphere.

Another speculative lunch, another great find. Small but friendly, lunch menu very good, and reasonably priced for its central location on the island. First a Pastis. Salade de Gesiers was perfect entrée, braised ham in a delicious sauce as main course. Hardworking but cheerful owner very welcoming. My wife also very impressed. Cosy and comfortable. Will come again.

This a lovely, typically French Restaurant run by a husband, the chef, and his wife, the lady who welcomes us, looks after us. The menu is explicitly explained. There is a good choice of starters, main courses and desserts. Each course was well and freshly prepared and the portions adequate. The prices are very reasonable. The restaurant, which is closed...
