Five of us chose the €27 menu over the standard €14 menu de jour. Still only 3 courses and no amuse bouche. Starters included foi gras, beef carpaccio, melon & jambon - all rather plain and predictable. Mains included sturgeon (the main reason I chose the more expensive option - well cooked but a tiny portion), entrecote, cannette. All was well cooked but the presentation was uninspired and the accompaniments fairly non-descript. We all enjoyed the desserts. Service was pleasant and helpful and we were able to sit outside on a pleasant day, but the bottom line is it was over-priced for what you got. I can't really recommend this restaurant - there are plenty of others to choose from.

We had fois grad as starters (2 different choices) and Coquilles St-Jacques/risotto as well as a nice meat as main dish. Everything was very taste and we got served one separate glass of wine (sweat white, tasty red wine). There was nothing we could complain about, neither about the dishes nor about the services which was very "attentive" and friendly.

In case we are again in the region, we will retunr to this restaurant.

Lovely meal - beautiful foigras and roasted lamb - husbands steak was a bit tough but on the whole the wine and food was wonderful - really deserves a visit - sat outside but the midges were a nightmare - they tried their best to deal with it with candles but unfortunately we got bitten a bit. So if your prone to being bitten please do go to this restaurant but sit inside.

We were staying nearby, so this restaurant was a convenient choice for dinner. The menu is extensive, as is the wine list, and the waiters are polite and helpful. We were on a fairly constrained budget, but even so we paid about 70 euros for 2 adults and 1 child. It's a fairly expensive part of the world, so from that point of view the price was ok. Nice setting in the village. I think they open about 7-ish for dinner and they do lunches as well.
