    Un repas aux touches féminines. Reflété dans les moindres détails. On constate que l'origine des ingrédients est le principal facteur de la qualité exceptionnelle des plats présentés. Très créatif. Délicieux. Une ambiance légère accompagnée d'un service jovial. Nous reviendrons toujours. Essayez de rencontrer le cuisinier après le dîner - les souvenirs de l'expérience dureront pour toujours. A meal with feminine touches. Reflected in the smallest details. It can be seen that the origin of the ingredients is the main factor for the exceptional quality of the presented dishes.. Very creative. Very tasty. A light atmosphere accompanied by jovial service. We will always come back. Try to meet the cook after dinner - the memories of the experience will last forever.

    Good food but arguably the worst service ever in a fine dining restaurant I’ve had. Restaurant was severely understaffed to the point where our tasting menu took 5 hours, until 1 in the morning. Finished plates sat in front of us for 45+ minutes, and wine glasses sat empty. Even during service, we sat with our food in front of us waiting for the wine pairing to arrive. Also no details of the food or wine pairing were shared in advance, making it extremely difficult to even understand where in the menu we were.

    Needs an English menu and waiter who can explain offerings. Took 3 1/2 hours to eat, very slow. Food was excellent.

    Had the Chef’s tasting menu. Quail, sturgeon and duck primary courses. Nine total plus an amuse bouche. Each course made me excited to taste what came next. We chose the wine pairing which were spot on. Friendly staff. Chef stopped by. Told her we would definitely come back and refer our friends. One of those dinners you want a whole entree of the course not just a taste. Well done.

    i preferred to sit outside ( the view is not so nice, but weather was so good ), " TATARE DU THON AVEC FOIE GRAS" and " WAGYN -BEEF-cARPACCIO) were excellent. The waiter did a good job.

    The food was superb...very creative with fresh local ingredients and lovely presentation. This high level of food deserves a high level of service....more could be done to provide a warm welcome and well trained wait staff. Nonetheless, would highly recommend!

    4.5/10

    Food was ok, lots of different flavours and ingredients won't be to everyone's taste. Service was pretty poor, we were seated and there were only about 6 people in the restaurant and it took 30 minutes to be asked if we wanted a drink. We weren't drinking alcohol and asked for a soft drink which we were told all they have was tonic water. So ended up just drinking tap water, have never been to a restaurant that doesn't have soft drinks for customers. It was over an hour before we got served our starter course which was far too long to wait. Booked this restaurant as it had a good rating on here but was very disappointed.
