After searching on trip advisor and liking the looks of the restaurant we booked a table online only 2 hours before. We requested a window table as the views on the pictures looked amazing. On arrival we were greeted and shown to the table. The waitress was so helpful as the whole menu is in french (obviously) but she was... More

We went here for an evening meal, looking over the lake and it was lovely. The atmosphere was amazing and the lady who was servicing us was so attentive! Our French was great and so she took time to explain the menu and talk us through all the food. The food was amazing! would definitely go back!

Dinner as a family on the terrace with stunning views over the lake. After a really refreshing cocktail with brilliant little homemade "crostinis", green olives tapenade and fresh goat's cheese, I had a daurade tartare, followed by a carré d'agneau cooked to perfection and a VERY VERY tasty, velvety jus. Everyting was fresh and cooked to order. I was also... More

I went yesterday for lunch with 3 of my friends. It was very hot outside but we still requested to eat on the terrace. Even thought the inside of the restaurant offers a wonderful view, we truly loved sitting under the red voile surrounded with greenery. The food (I am a vegetarian) was home made, local and delicious. The wine... More

Lovely place to sit and delightful staff. Not a huge choice but very varied. When we had waited for over an hour for our food they gave us a little taster and a free top up of our drink!!
