This place is well run by a young couple. We ate well here and the service was just right...not too fast or too slow. The dishes were tasty, freshly prepared and the right size. We very much enjoyed our meal.

Very comfortable restaurant, about 25 seats not to close together. Partial open kitchen and casual wine display add to the informal nature. Great local scallop special starter and cidre cocktails. Liked every dish and will go back again.
