“Great atmosphere.”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

Four of us ate here on a chilly September evening. We came across the restaurant by chance. It looked busy and inviting. We got the last available table. The food was simple but very tasty, the house wine was perfectly OK and the service was fast, friendly and efficient. Not fine dining but its not trying to be.

“Dreadful.”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

Poor food, House wine was undrinkable. Unpleasant waitress who thought she was doing us the greatest favour by serving us. Don't go there unless you are desperate.

“A little disappointing”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

The menu promised much, as did the atmosphere, but our overall feeling was one of disappointment. The food was OK but two of our party didn't get exactly what they had ordered (beware of computerised ordering methods) and service was slow. The meal and drinks were more expensive than other restaurants we tried.
We cut our losses and left after the main course. Enjoyed a delicious ice cream from a local parlour for 'pud'.

“Lovely local dishes”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

Our enjoyment of this restaurant was heightened by the lovely French family seated next to us.While trying to order a glass of champagne at the start of our meal, the French lady saved our blushes by stopping the waiter from bringing us a bottle. The two glasses cost us twenty euros, just imagine what a bottle would have cost! A little off- the- point gripe here: the previous night we had ordered champagne which cost ten euros for two glasses! Check the menu before ordering; this discrepancy is ridiculous! However, with the help of the lovely lady( our French is very basic) we ordered a local dish which en Anglais, was a sort of smoked sausage and dauphinois potatoes. It was delicious. The service was good and the wine very reasonable, which made the champagne price even more odd. On the basis of this meal i was inspired to buy a local made dauphinois dish to try the recipe at home.Recommended.

“1.5hrs waiting time”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

Okay, as a non-local, you have to accept that the kitchen opens at 18:00 for dinner and that you cannot order anything (not even any softdrinks) before 18:00, but as we were sitting there since 17:30, for what reason did the food arrive at our table at 19:10, please? Our steaks were extremely well done although we asked for British rare ("bleu").
