    They took so long in between the dishes. It took 1.40 hours to have the main course, I don’t know if they’re short of personal by the moment. But food amazing.

    Excellent à la carte menu, but some in the group were let down by mediocre plat du jour. Service and setting were both at the high standard you would expect.

    The only thing I have to remark is waiting times. We had to wait quite some time with dirty dishes on the table before they were cleared out.
