Refined decor both in the room and on the tables , the plates are also carefully prepared, so that the pleasure of eating begins with that of contemplating.

    Extremely rude waiter. We paid the drink and left, we didn't want to try anything else. By the way, my coke was warm and the glass with ONE ice cube at 38 degrees outside

    Every dish was superb. Simple but incredibly honest cooking. Sole Meunier with perfect courgette and tomato side, piment omelette, saucisson de cochon confit and chevre salad were all utterly delicious. We've eaten at many highly recommended restaurants in two weeks in France, travelling from Australia, including Michelin stars. The setting was unpretentious, but the food was the best we've eaten. Merci!

    Extremely rude service, they just ignored us. When they finally showec up, they grabbed our phones instead of just scanning the pass sanitaire. Avoid at sll costs
