Only real french restaurant in the area. Cosy and for a more formal dressed up dinner. Lots of excellent dishes. Astonishing good price quality ratio.

We had great expectations when seeing the 6 course Belgian inspired gourmet menu but were very disappointed.The service and atmosphere of the restaurant were very pleasant but the food was absolutely tasteless.

We went there for lunch without any reservation thanks to low season. Reviews from Tripadvisor brought us there. I can really recommend it! They have recently received a well deserved Bib gourmand from Guide Michelin! Cosy atmosphere and nice staff!
