The only other time I've had to cook my own food at the table was at the famous 'hot pot' restaurants in China. I didn't get it there and I didn't get it here.

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.

Food was excellent, restaurant was really nicely laid out with lots of space and relaxed decor. I really enjoyed the cheese fondue and the desserts were excellent as well. Only minor comment was that I might have struggled a little if I hadn't been there with a french speaker.

A thoroughly enjoyable dining experience. The setting is superb, the ambiance fab, the food delicious and plentiful. We were a bit wary of the charcuterie after reading two reviews talking about it negatively but in all honesty I didn't find anything wrong with it and I am French! Both waiters were attentive and nothing was too much trouble. As a... More
