We dined here in July and can only confirm the comments from other reviewers. Everything here is first-class from the warm friendly welcome by the owner to the fabulous food and very reasonable prices. Best to book but you certainly won't be disappointed

We had heard about this restaurant, but it exceeded all expectations. The courtyard is most attractive with one large and 2 small tables. The amuse bouche was just the beginning. Everything the 5 of us had was perfect, culminating with a delicious mixture of petit fours with the coffee. I can't wait to return.

Seated on the quiet terrace, my meal started with a refreshing trilogy of tomatoes as an amouse bouche. The girolles in a delicate pastry was accompanied by a perfect piece of hot foie gras. The veal with girolles & truffle potato were a perfect match, and I ended my meal with a raspberry 'clafooutis'. A delicious meal.
