I guess it's disappointing that the best course you are served is the cheese cart. Amuse were poor in flavor and in presentation. I had the langoustines that were served with a frozen leek puree that didn't have the best mouth feel. Veal roulade stuffed with sausage and covered with seared foie was tasty, but the foie must have been a C loaf because it had a lot of conective tissue and veins. Vegetables for that plate were poor in flavor and not worth the hassle. Dessert of pineapple carpacchio was tasty and light. The service seemed understaffed and all the tables were left with dirty glasses and dishes for the entire two hours I was dining.

The food is badly executed! Obvious lack of efforts and sincerity. This is completely out of place given the beautiful surrounding the restaurant has

The restaurant is badly sign posted and the fadiing, grubby photographs at the entrance with a barely legible menu should really have been a warning sign to us that this establishment feels that it is above the need to market itself.
Beware descending the steps to this apparently ambient setting! Once there you are trapped with a wine menu as lengthy and complicated as the entire works of Shakespeare, and the distinct impression that the most important person in the establishment apart from the manageress is the chef.
Whilst perusing the menu, the waiter brought us an 'appetiser' - a trio of dishes set on a piece of slate consisting of a savoury choux bun, a cold miniature tiny ratatouille thing with a dollop of warm mackerel and a glass off savoury/sweet custard with a dollop of squirty cream and a tiny slice of radish. Looked lovely but was all quite wrong in the mouth except the choux.
It was a delaying tactic sine it was another 45 minutes before the starters arrived. Looked lovely but presentation definitely takes it's place above quality of ingredients and flavour. My mixed grilled vegetables were actually actually a large dollop of pea purée with some beautifully arranged thinly sliced raw tomato, cauliflower, radish, cucumber and mushroom.

The main course was just nasty - expecting a sweet tender lamb cut cooked with an olive crust and a vegetable tartlette to accompany were disappointed to discover the lamb was heavily smoked and the vegetable tart was a ring of tough pastry with the cold ratatouille from our appetisers heated up and garnished with a couple of red leaves. Left most of it.
Paid the bill. 140e. Didn't mind that the most self important manageress didn't even ask if we'd enjoyed it. Couldn't get out quick enough

We found this one using the Michelin guide and felt very fortunate to get a table. In fact, we got the last open table the evening we visited. Between the two of us we had the langoustinos with some sort of brown puree (tasted sort of like mushrooms and brown Dijon mayonnaise), whatever the case, it was definitely one of those things you want to inhale it is so good. We also had sea bass with vegetables and scallops, and accompanied with a nice St. Aubin blanc. The ambience is wonderful and the hostess (I believe she is the manager) couldn't have been nicer. It was a very nice meal, nothing overpowering, but everything combining lightly. Highly recommend.

It doesn't get much better than this. Gorgeous crypt setting. Menu was robust as was the wine list. My dishes were fresh and well prepared. It's reasonably priced.
