“Good food, not great service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2014

Saturday lunch for four. Didn't feel welcomed on arrival and the service was very slow from start to finish, despite only 7 customers. We did get a smile right at the end. However the food was excellent, a limited menu but that did not bother us. We had the set menu which was good value and added a coupe ardechoise (having seen another customer have one)....delicious!

En Francais; bonne cuisine mais service super lent et pas tres acceuillant. La coupe ardechoise est delicieuse! Si domage que la patronne serveuse ne soit pas plus chaleureuse.

“Delicious”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2013

A friend of ours told us about this restaurant and that we had to try it! I must admit trying to find the restaurant without a sat nav is very difficult. We finally got there and were greeted on arrival, not overly friendly but professional I guess. The decor inside is minimal but lovely poppy paintings. Food was good sizes and very very mouthwatering. Menu price is good considering the size of starter and main. Dessert was a little disappointing not much choice. The waitress was professional but did not really have the enthusiasm, maybe she was having a bad day.

Very tasty food, cooked and presented well. However the choices were a little limited. Certainly good value for money.

“Niet zo goed/ not soo good”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2013

Not a great selection on the menu, even worse when 4 items not available. Service was so fast that we had the feeling we were stopping them from closing the restaurant early. We saw the open sign being carried inside and placed behind the bar. (This was around 7:25) Looks like they had no more bookings that evening.
Food was nothing special. Pre-prepared goats cheese starter, straight from fridge to table. Main was ok, but nothing special. The suggested dessert looked like left overs to be used up.
I was with a friend who speaks perfect French and did most of the ordering etc... Not once were we asked was everything ok, in fact as mentioned above I think the idea was to rush us through as fast as possible.

“Great find!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2013

I have eaten here two times and the food is amazing! It has only been open over a year but it is already a favorite of mine. Location wise it is not great, but there is parking which is important. Menu not overly expensive and totally worth the money! Wine list is a bit limited but still good choices! Truffle menu very nice as well, decor is simple but clean. Will defiantly be going next time i am in the region.
