This is a beautiful atmospheric dining room and we were excited to have dinner here. We have just purchased a home in the area and we have been trying different restaurants each time we go out to eat. This was our biggest disappoinment from the non existent welcome to the food. We both thought that the choice on the 31 Euro menu was poor. Only 3 choices for the main course, either a cassoulet, duck confit or trout. This was the lowest priced menu and the next one jumped to 47 Euros. My husband's cassoulet was good but my confit was dry (overheated?) and uninspiring, served only with a mound of thick French fries. Our first course of hors d'oeuvres and charcuterie was good but nothing special and one that could be easily put together at home after a trip to the supermarket. I chose dessert which was a slice of refrigerator cold apple tart with no sauce or creme fraiche. Certainly warming it would have been an improvement. My husband's cheese board was one of the poorest we have seen. All in all, we felt that the food was overpriced and our impression was that they cater mainly to the tourist trade. With regard to the non existent welcome, we considered ourselves lucky as several customers were just waved to their table, with the waiter pointing across the room to a choice of two tables while he took someone else's order!! Not somewhere we will be returning to! There are much better value restaurants in the area. A shame as there is so much potential. I do not normally write reviews but since there have been no reviews for a year, I felt I should write as honest an appraisal as I could.
