Dinner on Friday night, and just popped in on the off chance as we had been given a menu the previous day. Wow! Greeted by a lovely lady who showed us a table for two. Ordered salmon marinated in Absynth and French onion soup to start. Superb. Mains were seafood risotto, and roe deer stew with wild boar fillet. Again... More

We were a big company of 6 adults and 2 toddlers. Interior is super cool, comfy, relaxing. Menus a bit poor but food was good. Presentation of food was amazing. Staff was nice and spoke English. No rib eye there. Had Sea bass filet and it wasn't juicy it was a bit dry and potato on top in super oily,... More

Just off the main square, lots of character...bare walls, cosy, staff good. Very good little freebies before and after our meal. We went back again! Good menu choice.

We ate here on a couple of occasions, purely because the first night we ate there the meal was great. Staff were very friendly and helpful and the food on both occasions was fantastic. There is an excellent choice of food and for the adventurous you can even try snails and frogs legs, although there is more homely food available.... More

My husband & I stumbled across this place while doing some shopping. The food was phenomenal! The service was excellent. I ordered an onion soup which came with an onion jam which was amazing. My second course was tagliatelle with fresh vegetables. The pasta & vegetables were al dente(the way it should be) & the sauce was light & tasty.... More

This place is fantastic! I had a birthday meal with my girlfriend and was looked after very well! No groups of drunk Brits to be seen anywhere and the food was superb! I cannot recommend this place enough!

Very quiet when we visited this old coal storage cellar. The service was excellent and the food deserved a Michelin star. Unbelievable deserts and cheese choice - see photos.

Arguably the worst restaurant i tried this year.. First we had the choice to sit in an overheated cellar or an ugly terrasse with an unpleasant smell, but the real disapointment came with the food...simply a nightmare from the beginning to the end.. Of course what they serve has nothing to do whatsoever with French cuisine.. Level was so low... More

Had we not been given some good directions from a friend we could well have missed this restaurant which is tucked up an alleyway just off the old town square. We sat in the small courtyard which has seating for about 20 people but inside there is a very pleasant and atmospheric dining area downstairs. The food was good quality,... More

Restaurant situated just off the market square. Service was very good and the food was top class, the party of 4 of us each had a different choice from the quite extensive menu, a little dearer than some of the other restaurants in the area but well worth it.
