We had fondues and breads and meats and salads and the food kept coming! Everything was delicious. It has a French country farm house atmosphere that my wife loved.

If you want to sample fondues and great salads, go here! Don't bother with the house wine, try the cider, it's excellent.More

Hello, I am travelling with a goup of customers to Saint-Etienne to assist Portugal x Iceland on the 14th of June. Checking out restaurants, I found your place. Could you please share if you make reservations for a group of 15 for a late lunch on Friday June 14? We are looking for a "locals" restaurant, with good food (maybe some fondue) and to be able to taste cider and other local specialties - maybe some meat fondue? Could you please suggest a menu and a price range? thank you João Pedro
