“Lacks Flavour & Punches the Purse!”
Reviewed April 24, 2013

It doesn’t look much from the front but once inside the dining room is a pleasant room with interesting screens, using old wine bottles, to divide up the room. As usual, there is a choice of fixed price menus or a la carte. The food looks good but is a little lacking in taste. Beef cooked sous vide was tender and cut like butter but why was there a great lump of gristle in the middle? Lack of attention to detail and poor seasoning mark this place down. Staff are friendly and efficient but prices are too high for what is on offer.

“Fabulous food!!”
Reviewed September 8, 2011

We dined here twice on a 3 day stay in the area, we had the most lovely food! Not only did the melon soup taste superb, but the presentation was perfect. The steaks were as succulent as possible and the vegetables were so tasty and sweet. As I have to have a gluten free diet I was amazed to be offered the 3 small delicious puddings... usually the weak spot for coeliacs.
This restaurant was one of the highlights of our holiday. I will never forget it.... such perfection in taste and presentation, and as we had the 24 e menu it was fantastic value.

“great lunch”
Reviewed October 22, 2010

this is an excellent place to lunch in Mazan - good value lunchtime formule in spacious, clean surroundings. Staff are efficient, the chef takes time to talk to his guests at the end of service, & quality of food excellent. Wish we had time to return & try the full menu which is small but looks interesting. The restaurant has recently moved out of town to a new purpose built location, with pleasant terrace.
