I can honestly say that the lunch we were treated to here, was amazing. Like others have said the location made me a bit quizzical - just a bit strange next to a very busy road, but once inside it was delightful. The level of service hit the right balance and every course ( I think there were 9) was... More

The building is slightly off-putting when you arrive, the restaurant is located in an industrial zone and resembles a warehouse from the outside, but don't pay any attention to it! Lovely atmosphere and decor inside. Been before so was expecting good food. Its affordable gastronomy. Was a bit disappointed with starter this time though ( foie gras was a bit... More

I visited this restaurant with a friend who recommended it highly. The location is odd- on a Zone Commerciale sandwiched between cheap hôtels and a roundabout but don't let this put you off. The service was excellent and the food very reasonably priced and well cooked. The menu is short-a good sign and the kitchen is clearly visible from the... More

Really enjoyed dining at this restaurant, if you are anywhere near tours go out of your way to find it. Not the best location but the food and service are superb. Very generous with food and sevice, could not fault anything and the Cost is very reasonable for the quality.

felt very smart and expensive. very quiet and fairly busy for a Tuesday evening. Our French is poor for conversation so a lady appeared from the back to help with our efforts. It was i thought pricey but we stuck to the set menu which was good value really. and worth it. Wine was by the glass, half bottle or... More

A restaurant featuring hollow Greek columns in the middle of an industrial estate was a very odd first impression. I was tempted to smile assuming some irony, but no, the very pretentious service made me realise humour was off the menu. But the food was absolutely lovely, beautifully presented and perfectly cooked. Probably the best meal we have had in... More

I went for a dinner to a local friend, and I asked him to show me some real good, not touristic place. He was thinking a bit, and we finally landed here. The place was nearly empty (Tuesday), so maybe because of this, but the staff really cared about us. We ate a menu with foie gras (big portion), steak... More
