The starter and mains were excellent as was the wine. The experience would have scored a 5 star but for the dessert, this was billed as chocolate ganache, not so very disappointing end to a great meal.

This Restaurant was highly recommended in our Guide Book and also scored highly on Trip Advisor. It was one of a number of restaurants we had mailed to book reservations before we left the UK
Their tasting menu had received many plaudits and whilst we didn’t think that we could manage 6 courses we bravely opted to give it a go. We had perhaps the finest meal of our holiday so far. Add in a decent bottle of locally produced Rose wine, great service and coffees at the end and we were both replete and impressed
You must eat here!

We enjoyed our meal but we didn’t think it was outstanding. Reviews suggested it to be of the highest standard. However in our opinion every element of our meal was nice but no part was was particularly tasty or memorable. We feel that this restaurant has a little way to go before it reaches the levels that we are used to of the higher end establishments in the UK. Having said this they clearly have a superb range of fine wines

It promised much but delivered average. They openly declare that the menu is small so choice is limited so if you are veggie there is an option but only one. However that’s not the main issue for me as I do eat fish. They wouldn’t do a variation on the 6 course tasting menu which is fair enough so we went a la carte. My mushroom starter was superb. The fish main, however, was a bit style over substance. Pretty looking but lacking in flavour and the bean cassoulet was lukewarm.
Service friendly but set up of restaurant and music quite loud.
