We were there for lunch for two. We chose the lunch menu of the day, with a choice of meat (faux filet) and fish - we had one each. Everything was very good with the exception of the meat which was rather tasteless and a bit tough. A pity, since everything else, including the service said "excellent". The entrées (poached eggs on a bed of leek salad), the dessert (chocolate and red fruit charlotte), the cheese selection and the wine selection (local wines with two glasses included in the menu - I chose a red and a white) were all very good.

The waiter was very pleasant and efficient, although briefly put out when we mentioned that we had not liked the meat. He recovered nicely though. The ambiance in the restaurant is a little sombre / muted - clearly done with taste, but not ours!

The food was well priced and the portion sizes were also appropriate for lunch - we left satisfied without being over-full.


Un déjeuner pour deux. Nous avons pris le menu déjeuner "Cuisine du jour" avec viande (faux filet) et poisson. Les entrées (oeufs pochés, dessert (charlotte), et sélection de fromages, ainsi que le choix du vin (deux verres compris dans le menu) étaient tous très bons. Nous étions un peu déçu avec la viande qui n'avait pas beaucoup de gout et pas tendre. Pour finir un très bon café et des petits fours. Service souriante et impeccable, l'ambiance dans la salle un tout petit peu triste. Un agréable déjeuner qui aurait était peut-être mieux si nous avions tous les deux pris le poisson ce jour-là.
