“Lovely little place, very friendly service!”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

Stopped in here for a late lunch on a saturday afternoon.
we opted for the menu (25 euros per person, three courses and small appetizer) which was served in a timely fashion and accompanied that with a few glasses of very tasty and reasonably priced chardonnay.

They had no problem opening a bottle for us even if we only wanted a glass each. I had the asparagus for starters and my girlfriend had salmon and then i had a whole duck breast for main dish and my girlfriend had some kind of fresh water fish. all was very tasty and i ate the entire breast, which is after all quite substantial quantity of meat! we finished of with a selection of delicious cheeses from the area followed by coffee.

it turned out not to be such a quick lunch after all but highly recommendable.

“Beautifully prepared and presented food - amazing value!”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

Warm, friendly and attentive service, from the moment we walked in to the minute we left. The food was beautifully prepared and presented - a work of art - it was a pity we had to eat it! Very reasonable price - we would have happily paid 50% more ..

We would never have entered this restaurant without TripAdvisor, which is why we love it!
