“Good food ruined by shocking service”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

I had good memories of this place from an earlier visit so I was looking forward to taking advantage of the tasty-sounding autumnal game menu. As expected, the food was nearly faultless, but the good work in the kitchen was sadly let down by the nasty trolls who were serving.

Everything was very slow - we had our main courses 1h45 minutes after we arrived - but did we complain? No. We were happily guzzling wine at not inconsiderable expense.

Our friend had ordered a birthday cake for her husband earlier in the week, originally for 10 people, later reduced to seven. It was delicious, so delicious it seems that they wanted it back, expressing shock and incredulity at our request for some foil to take the remaining cake home! What were they going to do with it? Serve it to other customers?

When the bill came there was a discrepancy of about 108 Francs, or so we thought... on closer inspection it turned out to be 8 Francs, to which they reminded us that they had kindly given us the rest of the cake for free. On our way out we overheard them saying that it was the last time they would serve "people like them". What that was supposed to mean I can't say, but if they mean foreigners they can forget about their business surviving in an area populated by so many.

The icing on the controversial cake was the birthday gift that we accidentally left behind. We called to tell them we were coming to pick it up a little too late - it had already been opened. Hags.

“Beef it is!”
Reviewed May 7, 2012

This rustic, vaulted country restaurant concentrates on beef, with additional specials. Several cattle varieties are featured on their menu. Steak tartare is superb, and memorable.
