    The service was very good and welcoming. It’s a small restaurant that gives a very home cooked meal vibe. The food was excellent. Would highly recommend this establishment.

    If you want to experience real French food this is the place to go. Baked Camembert was incredible. Mains of Duck cassoulet and Ham knuckle and dessert of Chocolate pudding with Pistachio ice cream

    To start I had the baked eggs with cream, herbs and cheese. Initially eaten by dunking crusty white bread in to absorb the wonderful flavours and then digging in with my spoon to get every morcel. For my main course I had chef’s cassoulet with duck confit. The balance and intensity of flavours and textures were excellent. Easily the best dish of my trip. To finish I had the tart tatin which was delicious. The service was great and as was the atmosphere. I’d certainly recommend this restaurant.
