We had the €32 set menu and it was absolutely delicious, particularly the ocean pot - and the menu includes a cheese course. Only criticism was that service is slow so don't go if you are in a rush!

Excellent food, very friendly service, nice people! We enjoyed the Menu degustation with Foie Gras and Filet de Boeuf. But the highlight was the Fromages and the Sorbet. Also the Cumieres Pinot Noir was a nice experience, at a reasonable price. A perfect evening!

Hello we went there in may. I got someone who speaks French to ring and book for me, I think that would be best for you. You don't want to miss out on going. Hope that helps
