“Fine dining”
Reviewed July 10, 2012

The food is excellent and the presentation beautiful. The service is a bit lacking -- not trained by Parisian or New York standards and the decor is weak but the food makes up for it!

“Nothing special....”
Reviewed March 30, 2012

After too much shopping at La Roca Village, we unfortunately missed our reservations at Auberge du Vieux Puits and had to settle for our 2nd choice here.

We ordered the lunch special, which consisted of a salad, a chicken with pea risotto and an excellent apple sautéed with ice cream.

The chicken was decent, but the sauce didn't amaze. At 19 Euros, it was a steal for a Michelin one star restaurant, but it was also by far the most disappointing tasting one star we have ever eaten at.

As a result of eating here, we will be canceling all of our remaining reservations at Michelin starred restaurants and going straight for the Bib Gourmands for the rest of this trip.

“nothing special”
Reviewed September 12, 2011

Firstly the set lunch menu for 19€ is good value but that day was a bit boring, a gazpacho and chicken breast for main, so we ordered a la carte. The entrees were limited and we could only go for the foie gras, which was 2 huge slices (shared) A bit expensive at 24€ when you only have to open a jar. The two main fish courses, a saint pierre lots of capers (big ones) and olives 38€ and a merluchon- a small whole fish a bit mushy- with courgettes and garlic 28€ were ordinary. The sauce was supposed to have ginger too but was only the powdered variety. They just did not have that subtle wow factor that I would have expected. Service was pleasant and the wine we chose was one of the cheaper ones at 22€ and again nothing special.

“Poor value for money”
Reviewed September 3, 2011

What a terrible disappointment! Totally overpriced. We have no problem paying the price for great food. Both main meals were very fussy and nothing outstanding. The atmosphere was very unwelcoming and sterile. Terrible shame.
