    The food and ambience was great but service for this night was likely not the norm. We speculated that they were missing a staff member as there was only one person as host and waitress, The waitstaff was very pleasant but we felt badly that she was rushing around attempting to serve all tables and not other staff were ever seen in the dining.room. Otherwise everything was delicious, hot, and nicely served.

    Very salty food, lacking balance. Ingrediënten were cooked, but the vegetables either lacked flavor or were too salty.

    Delicious food from a hard working team. And ... when I foolishly left my wallet behind at the end of the meal the owner/chef ran 500 metres after us to return it. This enthusiastic young team deserve your business ... please support them. Oh and the wine list is good value ... our 2006 St Emilion was excellent !
