Since March, this restaurant has been under the ownership of Maxime who runs the front of house and his mother, Katia, the chef; a system that works well.

There is no menu, but Max will run through the starters, main courses and desserts on offer that day. The food is home prepared and cooked.

We opted for the copious spiced prawn starter and the sauce was very spicy; really nice.

For mains my wife had the chicken cooked in a mushroom sauce and I had the beef (casserole) in beer. The meat was beautifully tender and well cooked.

No room left for desserts!

There is a nice choice of wines at reasonable prices and our Pinot Noir was excellent.

We will certainly eat here again.

But definitely still as good!
I was slightly alarmed to see that Ici et La have turned into (partially) a buffet restaurant, as the very word brings to mind tinned veg in sloppy sauce - not at all. Jean-Paul's buffet is tasty, varied and all prepared at the restaurant, and, I was told, the buffet elements will change each week.
There are various formula, of buffet on its own or with plat principle, dessert etc, all at a very reasonable price. We decided on the buffet followed by the 'cheesecake du maison' which was really delicious.
Only down-side, it's easy to eat too much!

Since last year the restaurant changed its formula, but not its Chef nor its great food. Open now only weekdays for lunch, there is a buffet style hors d'oeuvre, with a choice of 1 of 3 main courses and dessert for € 19,50. Excellent choice of salads, charcuterie etc, followed by a very good and surprisingly confit de canard and a to-die-for chocolate mousse. Accompanied by a fairly prized housewine, We left feeling very content, but feared we would skip dinner...

We came here once earlier this week and there was no duck due to an illness hitting the duck farms, we had a delicious meal but at the end the cook offered us the chance to come back later this week and he would take some duck out the freezer due to the delicious food we were happy to come back, he sent us an email asking if confit and duck salad were ok, personally confit is my favourite, moving on we arrived at the restaurant and we were greeted by a welcomely cold room due to it being 31 degrees on the day. After about 4 minutes the chef came up to us and told us what we were offered, I ordered the confit and a salad for my starter. The salad was exquisitely prepared with a bottle of vinaigrette on the side. It came with a basic salad, a breadstick and some thinly sliced carrot. With the vinaigrette the whole salad became fantastic, after another short wait the confit arrived, it came with the confit (of course) chips, a salad, green beans and a pear poached in red wine, the confit was cooked perfectly because it didn't melt of the bone but it did have that firmness that just made it taste incredible. The chips were also cooked well without a drop of oil left on them so they didn't have that slightly oily texture, once again the salad came with a vinaigrette and it tasted good. The beans had small bits of bacon inside that weren't to crispy and not to soft, cooked to the perfect amount. The pear finally was incredibly delicious because it didn't taste to like wine but it didn't taste sugary enough to taste like a pear but like a whole new food. I then for pudding had a pannacotta drizzled with some caramel. The caramel was in perfect moderation to the smooth taste of pannacotta. It meant that it wasn't to strong but tasted creamy and sugary. We then had a nice conversation with the chef and finally headed out to continue our day. 5/5 for experience 5/5 for taste and 5/5 for presentation.

This one of our favourite restaurants in France. The food is simple but excellent. The composition is perfect. We never leave feeling too full (though the portions are generous). We have had lunch each visit and have eaten the menus du jour €12.90, the menu sur la pouce €14.90 and off the carte! On a hot day the cool interior is superb. We recommend the ribs, confit, duck salad, chèvre salad, the salad composee, the chips and the desserts.
