The staff is nice although disorganized. The food was not very good. Main course was barely warm. The fowl was overcooked and the bisque was too salty. I would not call this a top dining destination.

I had the steak, which was one of the fatiest toughest pieces of meat I've ever tried to eat in France. The pudding however was excellent. I can't give them any more than a 3 as there is no excuse for serving poor quality meat....More
