Looks and feels like a traditional restaurant, not sophisticated, doesn't pretend to be. We have visited a number of times now and always have the menu degustation, not cheap at 89 euro's, wine not included. A simple choice of meat cooked on the open fire,...More

Been coming here for many years and it just gets better and better. A simple menu cooked over an open fire. They say "on ne change rien" but in fact they do keep making small tweaks to stay on top of their game. A delightful...More

Grilled specialty but our vegetarian friends are also welcome, lots of vegetables and cheeses are also available. It is a traditional French cuisine type and it is a friendly restaurant. All our meats are cooked in the fireplace in the center of the room before your eyes. Our dishes are cooked on site and is maison.Nos products are fresh and raw. This is the spirit of La Chaumière since 1952 .All is of high quality but it is a concept, simplicity and taste so if you expect gourmet cuisine and white glove service to better dining elsewhere. The team is friendly and relaxed despite a dress code. No shorts but the tie is not mandatory rest assured! Leave your car in the hands of our valet and relax for a pleasant moment by the fire. (Reservations strongly recommended)
