We stopped on the way home from holidays in dourdan for the night and some food. We bumped into this cosy and boho-decorated place. And i must say we probably had the best food in our 3 week holiday here. There is not much to chose (two entrees, one main dish), but the tatziki and pork curry were great, not to speak about the deserts. We might plan our overnight stop on the way back in dourdan just for the restaurant. Forget about the kebab and pizza, and have some decent and honest dinner here

Real basic cooking, no many choices, service is limited and the total is over priced. The inside terrasse is however very Pleasant.

We came there thanks to Trip Advisor and it was a great experience.
The atmosphere is really cool. You feel like being home ... or even better ! Decoration is really coming from the heart of the owner, all details are there to make you feeling comfortable. One rule of the game to know is that there is only one main meal, but awesome ! We had an home-made "turkey tajine", cooked in a very delicate fashion, with a lot of savors sparkling in your mouth ! We loved it !!

Very unpretentious, nicely decorated with memorabilia from the earlier days of the 20th century. Delicious and reasonable menu with courses prepared daily, fresh juices and original teas...a very nice place for a lovely lunch with friends in a beautiful medieval town

They were on vacation for most of my stay, so only had one chance to eat here for lunch before leaving. It's a popular place -- and rightly so. The plate I had (they only serve ONE menu a day!) was a great stuffed pepper with rice and meat, etc. Well seasoned and the pepper was roasted a bit for extra flavor. Everyone's Entree's (appetizers) looked good .. which I skipped because I wanted cheese !

Alas, the cheese course was very disappointing -- it was a good cheese, but only ONE type -- with 3 slices of the same. What!??! Never had that in France before. I think they were not ready for cheese courses coming back from vacation or something! Everyone else's desserts I saw looked awesome though!

Although it looks small, it's actually very large on the inside and goes back to a nice patio, etc!
