I went to this place with a colleague and we got the tasting menu, it was a great meal for we got an asparagus soup, a fish and potato dish, duck with a cherry sauce, assorted cheeses, and mini desserts all for €25, it was a grommet meal in a very nice location!

We had a dinner on May 23 and were very disappointed. The veal was dry and hard with no flavor, the duck is hard to chew, we feel terrible, hungry but could not finish the meal. Money are much well spent at our other dining experience (ASSA and Domaine de la Tortinière). I hope it is only our bad luck.

The food was delicious, I specially enjoyed the carrot and orange purée that came with my dish, simply amazing.
The waiters were very nice and attentive.
The dessert was maybe a bit too sweet for my taste.
A bit expensive, but you do get paté and bread, and little amuse bouches included (we had the main course + dessert menu).

We lunched there with two friends, the food was really tasty, the restaurant is nicely decorated and we had plenty of rooms, only the toilets were a little outdated. Good advices in wines were given and the service was outstanding.

Situated in the old town this is a restaurant with some character. Modified to suit its purpose there are lots of the old features remaining like the stone fireplace and original beams. We selected the chef's choice menu. 5 courses chosen by the chef- they were wonderful. Each course was a mini masterpiece, well presented with great flavour.
It is a small restaurant and patrons without a booking were turned away, so either arrive early or make a reservation.
Certainly to be recommended.
