We have eaten here several times but we were so disappointed with the meal tonight. The greeting was mediocre, especially for Village Blanc! And we have stayed at the main hotel and eaten in the restaurant there. The staff are far from welcoming, bordering on...More

The village is small but beautiful. Both restaurants ( the mother's and the son's) are near each other. The food was delicious, presented very beautiful. Higley recommended, but be prepared - it's expensive.
