“Great food don't expect much customer care”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

Undoubtedly a cut above anything within miles- maybe Rouen or one of the Michelin restos in Upper Normandy. We have been going a few times a year for the 8 years. The chef in creative and combines fine ingredients in novel ways: a crumble toping on a crème de foie gras, bananas in spring roll style pancakes (nem). Presentation is always 'correct'. So dining here is a pleasure- best deal is Thursday night when it is only 15 euros instead of 23 or 27 euros for the menu. BUT, and here the questions about the importance of client service and dining out comes in. Madame' could certainly use some training on warm welcome and client relationships. So many places rely on word of mouth. This always is a let down - could easily be remedied- and is for me a deal breakerI

“excellent food, sensible prices”
Reviewed July 12, 2012

We had another excellent lunch here at the end of June. A small range of different dishes all extremely well cooked and presented. Deep flavours - a beautiful pork cassolet - and some quirky bits too - endive ice cream?.
Phone and book though as their opening times can be a bit quirky.
We will certainly go back.....often

“Creative and delicious cuisine - excellent value”
Reviewed January 23, 2012

We have eaten here frequently over the past few years and this restaurant is now the benchmark by which we judge all others. For the prices charged, it's unbeatable.
