We came there on a Saturday for lunch and we took the 75€ menu (without any wine) named "Le Pré et la Marée"; with delicious and very original dishes. I especially liked the dessert of a pear flambée stuffed with roquefort. It is quite expensive...More

Great meal (taste, presentation, quality of ingredients), almost "Michelin star" level. Value for money seems fair (menu Grand Large).
