We've only eaten there once, maybe we were unlucky. But nothing about the service, ambiance or quality of cuisine was sufficiently interesting to merit a return visit. And not particularly cheap.

Modest but excellent in quality and service. Bio healthy food served, attractively presented. Well run by a young partner-couple Edwige and Stéphane. Ms Edwige in charge of the restaurant and Mr Stéphane cares for the cuisine. Highly recommended.
