We were recommended to try the restaurant. Normal slow paced service but very friendly and welcoming. Food was good and the wine excellent. A very true French experience with local food and wine. Good value too. Thanks to the staff.

Had a couple of meals there this week, menu a bit limited but excellent burger & salad dishes. Desserts a little bit boring, lovely setting though.

We went on a Saturday night and there was live music on. Hadn't booked but got a table outside. Service a little on the slow side but food when it came was good. Great cafe gourmand. Felt comfortable taking our young children there.
