    Appetisers were great. Main course (sandre) lacked a little bit of taste although cooking was perfect. Desserts looked nice but taste was a little disappointing.

    Un petit peu moins bien que les fois précédentes : qualité des plats un peu décevante et les portions semblent réduites. Service un peu juste, manque de professionnalisme.

    You will enjoy splendid Cuisine Française with purely local wine. The overall quality is absolutely constant for several years. One of the best restaurant in Joigny and north of the Burgundy. Stop there, the terrace is wonderful during the summer!

    We thought the food very good and reasonably priced. The atmosphere was nice. Most of the waiters were good, but our main waitress was not very helpful. We were the only ones in the sun on the terrace and when asked her to open a nearby umbrella, she told is to wait because the sun would descend soon (it was an hour later). We asked the hostess if we coild moce, amd she readily foimd a mice rablee for two im the shade Things went downhill from there witj our waitress. She forgot oir water, didn't pour our wine, and when my husband motioned for our bill, she called to us from across the terrace that we could pay on our way out. We thought that she waa rude, and it spoiled the nice evening.

    Fantastic restaurant along the banks of the river. Every dish was delicious (especially the desserts!) and the restaurant was very accommodating and patient with our children. Would definitely recommend this restaurant! Ranks among our best meals in France.
