This small restaurant with a limited menu was great value for money. The menu at 25€ offered some really difficult choices. The warm goat's cheese starter was delicious as was the main course - duck cooked three ways. The chocolate mousse was the best I...More

Walking in the old city, we stopped in here for an early lunch. There was only one other customer, but by the time we left, it was full, and people were waiting for tables. An excellent meal. Good service. Great value.

A homely little restaurant not too far from the town centre. Entrees: Foie gras was really good but the salad was a bit of a let-down (not being a big fan of mayonnaise-style dressings). Mains: Fish was simple while the potato dish was full of...More
