This is a small place in the heart of Aix les Bains. It only has 24 seats during inclement weather so make sure to make a reservation. It is best to go by in person to do so as they did not respond to an e-mail we had sent a day earlier. The food is pretty good though not great. I had the ceviche with rice to start as I was curious how that could work together (it didn't). The ceviche by itself was lovely but the three scoops of curried rice did not add anything to it and the ceviche would have been fine by itself. I then had the calf kidneys with vegetables as a main. The kidneys were a bit undercooked so somewhat tough in the center, though the sauce was lovely. The medley of vegetables was also great, except the asparagus that was overcooked. I then had the cheese platter for dessert and given, that this is France, it was unimpressive. None of the four cheeses stood out regards to texture or taste. Surely the chef could have done better to pick more interesting cheeses. They offered wine by the glass and given that the server spoke no English (or any other language than French-we offered three languages to pick from) I tried two whites and two reds. None of them were special, which, again this being France was disappointing. The wines were also overpriced given the average/below average quality they represented. Also the server was easily frazzled and acted a bit chaotic and hectic throughout the evening which took away from the whole experience. She also overcharged us by €100 by mistake which did not help the situation a bit. Overall, the place was okay but I got to think that there are better places in town than this one. I would not go back.

We chose this restaurant because of the good reviews and indeed it was a good choice. The menu is small but creative, the restaurant itself is "artsy" and the lady who served was adorable. Would we come back? Probably yes.

Swordfish, cod and beef were our entrees. Accompanying vegetables were delicious. Leisurely meal. Although the dessert selection was small; creme brulee or molten chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream, they were both tasty.
We shall return!

So it was Monday and August. Many restaurants in the region, the good ones, don't open Sunday or Monday. And they lose for a month over summer. So we had to find somewhere new to go. And lucky for us. Great food (talented chef) and a lovely waitress. A lot classier than we thought it would be given its in the tourist strip in Aix. One small word of caution, I reckon if it was really busy they would struggle to keep up, but maybe on other days they have more staff. Anyway, no matter, it was perfect. And great wines and desserts!
