We loved the Chateaubriand which came with three different sauces. They also brought us an amuse bouche to start and wonderful baked breads. We enjoyed breakfast each morning as well. They bring freshly baked banana bread and freshly squeezed juice as well. Very romantic setting!

I love breakfast at this place. Very quite, romantic and chic. Food is perfect and lieu itself invites you to stay longer than planned. This is a nice place if you live in town and wants to bring someone for an special occasion.
