We remained thirsty throughout the meal, as the carafe d'eau we asked for never arrived, and the (delicious, well-priced) bottle of Ladubay Sapphire Brut 2010 was put at the far end of the table, in between two of our children and out of our reach, so there were some long dry interludes between finishing one glass of wine and waiting to have another poured for us. I'm beginning to think that even though we always order a soft drink for the kids and wine for ourselves, some restaurants in France like to 'punish' us for asking for tap water - by never bringing it. But thirst aside, this was a splendid meal from the heady intense tomato gazpacho with parmesan cream & saucisson, through the extremely pleasing traditional starters - lots of attention to detail and flourishes here - and the mains of pike / veau with rognons in creamy sauce. Plenty of use of interesting herbs which, if they hadn't been so busy, I would have liked to have asked about to find out more. Desserts were fine - I had a perfectly good sabayon - and the cheeses were generous, varied, tasty. What made the experience particularly positive for us was the children's food - it's hard going in our experience to find a restaurant that delivers for children as well as parents but here, they simply offered a choice of fish or meat and then they gave the children a lovely plate of saucisson & salad to start, followed by a just-right plate of rare steak & gratin dauphinois (with smily faces made of salad) and topped off with a magnificent bowl of ice cream. Not for this restaurant the cursory "deux boules" of boring ice cream: the reward for clearing their plates came with pieces of strawberry & grape, plenty of chantilly cream, multicoloured sprinkles and a cocktail umbrella which the kids delightedly wore in their hair to the amusement of fellow diners. Speaking of whom, most diners appeared to be local and I'm not surprised. A very decent honest restaurant providing food to make you happy at prices that are extremely fair.
