We stopped in on recommendation from our hotel. The owners greet you with a smile. They served delicious fresh hot bread from a fire oven. Your fill them and enjoy. The atmosphere is unique with the cave... worth a visit.

The host was friendly and attentive. The atmosphere was unique. The price was reasonable, especially since wine was included. But the rillette de porc reminded me of cold chicken salad before any seasoning is added. The fried pork was the same. Nothing special. The goat...More
