We had dinner on a Saturday night with a party of 4. Making the reservation wasn't really necessary since there were only 3 tables occupied the entire evening. We were welcomed in a very friendly way by the maitre. Aperitifs were good, but I missed some amuse bouches. The actual menu was nothing to write home about. Baby lobster was ok, but I didn't taste the fois gras that was supposed to accompany this... Main course (duck) was good, but the sauce was sticky and tasteless. Nice dessert (millefeuille with strawberry and rasberry). Service was quite all right, but some of the staff were giving comments on the (few) other guests (and on us!) loud enough to hear it. Very annoying...
The couple that joined us had been there before a long time ago and told us that it used to be a lot better.
All in all not a terrible experience but we definitely won't visit the restaurant again. Too expensive for what we got...

Very good restaurant. Terrine of goose liver as starter and duck as main course. Very good accompanying wines. Great service and nice location.
