We have visited the restaurant on numerous occasions and never been disappointed. There is always a warm welcome. The menu choice is very good and very reasonably priced. The 'extra' amuse-buches are a lovely little touch. The restaurant is highly recommended for any occasion.

This was the only restaurant we could find open and we discovered a gem. Run by an enthusiastic young couple, the small menu was excellent. All seasonal locally sourced food cooked fresh. Thoroughly recommend you try this.

The young couple running this small and basic restaurant are enthusiastic and keen to please. We struggled a bit, when ordering, as neither of them speak much English but that was entirely our fault for not having better French. If you don't want to be...More
