Service is very friendly and pretty quick. The food is fantastic with a large choice of wines. The location is very nice (a vaulted stone cellar).

Excellent food prepared and presented well in very comfortable surroundings. Restaurant is listed by Michelin which is deserved, probably not far off a star. Would benefit by explaining dishes to English speaking customers with the same enthusiasm and detail as for French customers.

We were 3 couples and we sat in a nice private room. We took the tasting menu and the experience was fantastic. One after the other the dishes were perfect and delicate. Good and reasonable priced wine to accompany the food. Great!

The welcome here was lovely, both by the front-of-house and the chef, and the food was very nice, but the chef is just trying too hard so the flavours on the dishes are just a little too intense and a little too overwhelming. The produce...More
