Fist if all we were served a fig with this special soft cheese (I forgot the name). Then, we first had a plate of tree different prosciutto which one was excellent. We also had a escalope de fois gras lightly grilled which was completely raw and cold inside and too gummy to eat. It was accompanied by toasted brioche, compote and sweet onions. Then we had some fish (was it loup de mer?) and a beef in red wine accompanied with their vegetables and potatoes. For dessert we had a caramelized figs with biscuits and sweet ice cream of some cheese (I know the cheese but don't remember its name). We also had a fondant au chocolat with some apricot sorbet.
Overall, I would say that the ingredients were excellent. They don't serve the fancy dishes you normally get in Michelin stared restaurants but traditional plates. Still, I would have expected a bit more creativity. The dessert with the fig and cheesy ice cream was the only dish I would consider creative. Also the components of the dishes weren't very harmonic in the sense that it isn't one taste sensation but several ingredients that don't always match.
The evening we ate there there was only one other table occupied. I had some trouble to understand the waitress as she only spoke Italian. Therefore the atmosphere was a bit strange.
