We were there at lunch time & they were low on the set menu but the substitute was delicious. My family had veal with spaezli and I had vegetarian spaezli. Ice cold water was served without us having to ask for it, which was a lovely touch on a hot day. A bit out of the way and less touristy, but that added hugely to the charm. Definitely worth a visit, but not if you are in a hurry. We spent 2 hours there, most of it waiting.

Don't let the plain decor or weird configuration of this bistro fool you. This is a fabulous place to eat : its off the beaten path. Everything is done by a gorgeous Vietnamese-French lady and her handsome French partner and even though there are still tables available they won't seat you if they feel you will get slow or inadequate service. Allot of restaurants I know could learn a lesson from that!Food is mostly French classic cuisine with lots of variety and they made the best Hamburger I have had in years and on 2 other occasions delicious daily specials. And if you like Floating Islands desert the best i have ever had! Only reason for not giving 5 stars is I usually never do, but mainly because the seating is not comfortable (but i am a big guy!) . But thats minor! Go fir the wonderful food and the lovely owners!

We arrive quite late for lunch, and there was no other customers in the restaurant, nonetheless the owner and cook gave us a warm welcome, was very friendly, spoke french very well, and we had fantastic home made food. Definitively recommends the place

After seeing all the trip advisor reviews we decided to give it a shot. It's all away from all the touristy places so we were happy about that. We were the first to arrive and the chef was more than helpful in giving us a seat (without reservation).

Starters came and we had the camembert and squid. Both starters were huge so we already knew we would struggle with the main.

Wasn't really impressed with the main (stupidly I took the chicken burger) but again the portions were huge.

Giving it a 4 as it just didn't quite hit the mark although...I would definitely go again, and definitely recommend!

We arrived at this lovely quiet place . On a Mo day night we didn't expect it to be bursting at the seams, we were given the friendliest of welcome both by the owner and the chef. Nothing was too much trouble . A wonderful explanation of the " chefs recommendations followed .
A delicious meal followed but the ambience I of" Madam." Made the meal all the more enjoyable.
Do not miss out ! Go there, try it for yourselves, you will not be disappointed. Sadly they are closed on Tuesdays, but they deserve a day of rest!
