Our hotel receptionist recommended this restaurant and it was delightful. We booked a table (an absolute must) as the restaurant is small but were cold and tired so turned up 15 minutes before opening time.

My life has changed! Ok, I sound dramatic or a bit silly but regardless, excellent fondue and very good service. You must reserve though - I got turned away yesterday. Think I'm returning tomorrow for lunch.

Actually quite a small restaurant, but big windows make it feel quite large. The staff were lovely and friendly creating a nice relaxed atmosphere. Our meal was perfect, local dishes that fitted exactly what we wanted. One thing I found odd (which initially put me off) was the design of the menu, to me it gave the feel that this... More

We enjoyed our meal here, especially the carpaccio & fondue. Service was good as well. Ambiance is casual, lighting was a bit bright. Very good experience.

This little cozy restaurant is an excellent place for couple or group. Make sure to make a reservation if you go there on the weekend or if you're a big group. They have yummy French food and the servers are very nice and helpful. Defiantly recommended.

My colleague and I had dinner on Saturday night. The place was fully booked, I tried the perch and it was perfect. The Caramel ice cream that came with the apple tart was the best!

We spent our last evening here and had a great meal and were looked after very well by the staff. Food was very nice and reasonably priced.so much better than La Caleche. This placed proved that you can get good service in France and you don't need to put up with bad service in France
