Came here for a quick bite during an evening. The food is good, with a good value for money. There are better places around but this is certainly a good spot.

The tartiflete and the veal escalope were the highlights on the menu. Warm, cosy, service a little slow but it was packed and very helpful and accomadating staff. Good local hearty food. Avoid the fondue! Great location right on the main shopping street.
