A very good restaurant with a lovely atmosphere and very good cuisine . The sole in almond sauce is fantastic and very reasonably priced. If you have a sweet tooth the desserts are fabulous . Highly recommended !

Steak not cooked well, bad crème brule and bad coffee. Overpriced for what you get. Would not recommend this place.
