“This was very lovely French cuisine”
Reviewed August 21, 2013 via mobile

We enjoyed our night out but thought it weird that all the other three tables on the terrace were also from the UK. Oh well can't be helped, it was a Tuesday!
Food delicious.

“Nice lunch but they need a baby chair”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

Nice food from a simple menu. €12 a head for the traditional three course lunch. Weirdly, the bill didn't tally up to what we had but I only noticed it after I had left as I was rushing after my wife and child. Clearly, I should have gone back to sort it out but it was definitely incorrect so as one should always do in restaurants, please check your bill.

Word of caution to families with small children, they didn't have a baby seat. We ate outside, which was nice, and had to create a baby chair from stacking garden chairs... It was fine for us in the end but they should really get a baby chair. As fair as I understand it, they get quite a few couples with young children so it is not an unreasonable ask.

Overall it was a nice simple lunch fand or €12 a head it is worth a visit.

“Lovely”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

It was our first meal in France and we were travel weary, jet lagged and unable to call up any of our limited (very limited) French. Our server was helpful although her English was limited, made us feel comfortable and the food was delicious. Highly recommended.

“excellent”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

Quaint little restaurant in a beautiful village. Menu is short and simple but adequate choices. One menu for approx euro 20 and one for 24, each with a choice of 3 appetizers and 3 mains and a cheese plate or dessert. We had a group of 9 and everyone enjoyed what they had ordered. The mousse de foi gras app. and duck main seemed to be the favorites. Good selection of desserts which wee all excellent. Staff were extremely nice and helpful.
