We eat here every couple of weeks--sometimes lunch, sometimes dinner. It is our favorite restaurant. Great care is taken to source the highest quality produce and meats. You can taste and feel the specialness of the meal that is prepared especially for you. It is a delight to see, to taste, to eat. Clarissa is an amazing chef and could easily be working at a Michelin restaurant.

Don't be put off by the exterior or interior decor, which makes it look a little like a student hangout - the food far surpasses the environment!

The salads were amazing - too many flavours and textures to describe, and all the ingredients were very fresh. As others have said, you get a very full plate - I'm sure we wouldn't have been able to eat a starter in addition to the main and dessert we ordered.

The value was excellent too, and I was particularly impressed by the children's menu, which was a small portion of a proper adult meal, with corresponding quality. Even the raspberry ice-cream tasted as if it had seen some fruit in its, rather than a bunch of chemicals.

The waiter and atmosphere were very relaxed too, which made it a low stress place to eat as a family.

We stumbled across this wee restaurant. We had no booking but they made sure they could take us. Superb service. Fabulous fresh wholesome food. Locally sourced as were the beers which were fantastic too. Thoroughly recommend.

The food Was good, the plates were very beautiful. The apéritif punch Was very exotic and strong enough. If only the service could have been as good as the food! The cook whom was also serving was rude ands some things were overpriced (7.5 euros for a "nougat glacé".... ), it made the experience a little bit disappointing. I advise to choose the "lunch set" because ordering a A la carte dish will get the staff all confused.

Generous portions, Home made, Fresh, what more? Personally prepared by the Boss This is the best of the best! I am vegetarian which is not easy in France, but no problem here. We visit this restaurant regularly with family and friends and are always presented with something new to savour and it is not expensive. The restaurant is not large so you are best to book in advance.
