Last night we enjoyed delightfully prepared and presented meals atL'Absibtge. The device was professional, friendly and uontrusive. We highly recommend this small restaurant. It is tad mor expensive than our favourite St Malo restaurant-Le Borgnefesse which is nearby. Our advice is -go to both!

We enjoyed a sophisticated & delicious 4 course meal (well priced "formule"/prix fixe! The service was slow because there are three levels to the restaurant. Also we were a large group (10).
