The local menu for 16 Euro is excellent. We had a salad with French cheese. Then duck with mashed potatoes and a tasty sauce with orange. We finished with a crème brûlée. Excellent!

Terrific dinner yesterday. Quail starter was innovative and delicious. Main courses we tried of lamb, and fish, both very good. Service also good, even though it was busy. Highly recommend this restaurant, and will be back again soon.

We've been to this restaurant a few times and sometimes the food has been stodgy, with the same accompaniments served for all of the main courses i.e. little thought given to which vegetable or side dish is suited to the fish, meat, poultry or vegetarian...More
