They are only open Thursday-Saturday and we were lucky to be there on a Thursday. The place is lovely and romantic... basically a house well outside of the town. The food was excellent. I had the crispy chicken livers for an appetizer and duck legs...More

This was our first visit and we certainly enjoyed our meals. The place is a bit in a time warp and is pretty typical French. My rack of lamb was excellent as was my wife's seared scallops. Nice country setting. We would try again.

When we see the description “ Fine Dining”, our thoughts are mostly of the food quality, but at Joelle’s it is so much more. Pastoral views, soothing music, excellent food, pleasant and efficient service, what more could you ask for?

We dined here during a spa vacation on a freezing cold, snowy night in early April. The food was wonderful, especially the creme brûlée Joelle made to celebrate my birthday. Alain, the owner, was kind and charming and made the whole evening feel really special....More
