It was nice to be able to eat outside with a full fledged table with linen and everything. We had crayfish salad with avocado mousse, chargrilled char and clafoutis as desert. Lots of locals visiting. Great service. Recommended!

Elite has improved its quality of gluten-free bread, which was very necessary to accompany the succulent snails soaked in garlic and olive oil. Once again, every dish was artful, flavorful, and reasonably portioned. High quality, consistent food here, especially the seafood. I'll be back!More
