Wife and I sat down for dinner here Aug 2012. I had the duck breast with blue cheese, she had the Rump Steak. Portion size was very good. Wine was good. Service was good. Two mains, two deserts, one coke, one water, one bottle of wine E75. Would eat there again.

The waiters were pleasant and friendly and knew enough English to help our French-deficient family. They had a nice, varied menu to accommodate different tastes, including curried chicken and rice, salad with an amazingly good goat cheese, and pasta that resembled spaghetti with meat sauce.

Nice food, a little bit pricey. Wine is expensive here. Overall experiance was good and enjoyable. Service was OK, and they do not provide you with clean cutlery when you finish your starter which was a little dissapointing.

The only nice things about the restaurant was the atmosphere - outside dining in the square was nice. The food was subpar & the service disinterested. My lamb was over cooked, as well as, being 1/3rd fat & gristle. My boyfriend's salmon was dry & bland. I ordered a glass of red with my meal & received it when I was finished eating. While we ate both tables surrounding us sent back their steaks & one lady even sent it back a second time. The waiter never returned to the table to check on them & the man had to flag him down both times. Possible the worst meal we have ever had. Granted it is a tourist trap & service in France ranges but that is no excuse.

We arrived early and were told they didn't open for another half hour. When we were finally seated, we found the dining room halfway full - apparently diners came in a different door and were seated before us. Once seated, we waited what seemed like forever for someone to take our order. We then waited and waited for our food to arrive, even though tables around us were being served (they arrived after we did). Once we were served, the food was delicious. We didn't return because we were treated so poorly.
