We left this restaurant with a €90 bill for two of us! Granted we drank too much red wine, quaffable Chinon, but the food was extremely mediocre. The chips and salad were ok but the rump steaks were tough, over cooked and very overpriced, €19...More

We just wanted some simple French food and the 18 euro, 3 course set menu was good value for a goats cheese salad, chicken and frites and tarte pommes. Yes the waiter was a little surly to start with but we managed to make him...More

Had the set menu and for what we paid was fine. Unfortunately the waiter was unfriendly, abrupt and wasn't aware of his customers needs. Must be plenty of other restaurants where you are welcomed with a smile, it's free!

Avoid the place! Service is poor and food is already processed. Such a shame for the gastronomy to call this place "a restaurant". Total waste of money. There are much better places in the area for the same cost and cooked on the spot.

Took a chance, but it was a mistake. Food was edible, just about, wine tasteless; service ok. Toilets completely inaccessible for anyone without mountaineering experience.

We chose the place without checking the ratings--sometimes you discover a gem otherwise you may find a turd. Our luck ran out. Although there were a lot of people eating there, they probably were unwitting tourists such as ourselves. I had the fish of the...More

After reading the negative reviews we were sceptical, however we had a good experience, albeit we were there before it opened. Gerard made us feel welcome and everything from then was great. We opted for the menu where my wife had the steak, which other...More
