I visited this restaurant with a great deal of anticipation. A while back I had had a fantastic meal here and wanted to share with my children. Well, I got that very wrong. Terrible onion soup, burnt pasta, dull steak. Disaster. Pizzas are good though....More

We wanted to try this restaurant because it is located in an old cellar. Very nice stoned, arched ceiling and stained glass partitions made the restaurant cozy. We ordered pizzas (vegetarian and special). We had to wait for 50 minutes to get our food. Pizza...More

Great little spot underneath downtown Cham. We were the first table in on a Wednesday night and we really enjoyed our cozy conversations in the cave before the place got busy. Overall, a great find. Well-priced French comfort food alongside a Mont Blanc Blanche...Mmm.

We walked by this restaurant the first few days of our holiday, as it is not too obvious on the main Street, underneath the Chinese restaurant and you have to enter by going down a narrow staircase. However once we discovered it we went back...More
