We found this restaurant which was just a short walk outside of the main town centre. We were warmly welcome and offered a table either on the spacious terrace or in the stylish interior. We opted for the terrace and watched as the restaurant and...More

Everything about this place was spot on. We had the €21.50 menu and we weren’t disappointed. All the food was lovely but especially recommend the duck confit. The waiters were very efficient and polite. My other half is French but the waiters made the effort...More

Rather disappointing. My wife was brought the wrong fish dish. I had the burger that was reasonable. Overall we thought it was a little pretentious and over priced.
