We booked with the forks offers and got the 50% on meals as mentioned, service was very welcoming, good service, good advice on wine and deserts and excellent entrecôte. So nothing to say, very good experience.

Local bistro opposite a nice looking church, clientele mainly Swiss so not a tourist trap. Was pleasantly supplied by my meal, service was prompt and pleasant.
