Walked in with a party of 12 with reservation of a month's standing, at 1pm on a beautiful flea market Sunday afternoon. Lots of folks in town. Not another soul in the place. Our fault from that point on.

We had a great 5 course meal here. It really feels as if the chef is personally cooking for each guests. Service and atmosphere was also excellent. There were mosquitoes outside but we attributed that to being in the country.
