Tried this resto based on previous reviews. Menu is limited, yet there were several options for us to choose from. Each dish was original and well presented.We were very pleased with all of our choices and the waiter/owner recommended a wonderful well priced wine. We dined in the cave and in warmer months there is an outside terrace. While I... More

This restaurant is tucked away on a side street and not easy to find, however it is really worth seeking out. We had a delicious lunch with good local wine at a very reasonable price and the service was swift and unobtrusive. The subterranean dining room was the perfect place to escape from a cold February day!

With wine and coffee we spent 37 euro each, but we would have even paid more for what we have eaten, seriously... Go here... More

The restaurant is a few streets east from Hotel de ville and it's off the main street. When we arrived at the restaurant we were greeted by the waiter at the door. He then took time and explained the whole menu in English before he lead us to the basement. Underground it is a whole new different ambience. Let's say... More

We had the formule midi, which was 2 choices in starter and 2 choices in main dish. The option was either meat or fish. The food was excellent and the portions satisfying. It seems that a limited choice really benefits the quality as everything was very well cooked and presented and the products were fresh. Would definitely recommend this restaurant... More
