Food isn't cheap but it's really, really tasty. I had hake filet in camembert sauce and it was one of the best pieces of fish I've ever ate. Staff offers excellent customer service.

2 kind women to serve you. Very nice moment with good advises concerning the food and the wines. The budget is totally correct. The menu apparently changes a lot, quite every week, following the ideas if the Chief.

Had a lovely dinner to celebrate St Valentine's day. Service excellent and food of a high quality. Faux filet excellent with sauce and potatoes. Husband raved about the duck breast. Excellent wines and a lovely atmosphere, just what you would expect from a quality French bistro. You get what you pay for in this establishment. Recommended.

this local bistro is a very good place for experience the good regional cuisine. the menu is not big (5 entrees, 5 main course, 5 desert) it means that they are putting lots of attention in every dish. you can feel that their is someone there in the kitchen that knows his job.
