Great little restaurant. We tried the foie gras and it was delicious. We followed this with beef steak. It was amazingly tender and nicely presented. Desert was a chocolate fondant. Equally delicious. They have a good wine list.

We, a bigger group, visited on a Thursday night. The place was half empty. The food was excellent. The price quality ratio was also good - especially if you choose a set menu. However, we found the staff a bit impersonal and too formal - also "throwing" the forks and knifes to you.

Staff is very kind. I ate here at multiple occassions over the past years. The first two occassions (2012 and 2013) were stunning: what a great dishes, amazing combinations. It was just thrilling. The last visit (Summer 2014) was a disappointment: again special combinations, but the various flavors did not seem to match. It was confusing. One more try later... More

This restaurant located near the main square is well known for its traditional local cuisine. We took the menu (Gourmand (32€). Each course was a delight. The service is also excellent. The restaurant is also quite so we really spent a great time.

Truly authentic and pleasant food, we tried some different restaurant during our week in Poitiers and it's the one you should try if you juste have to try one. The restaurant is composed of a serie of little calm and cozy rooms, in the city center between the Blossac parc and the town hall.
