We decided on 3 apps to share - duck rillettes, warm brie and wild boar egg rolls. All were delicious, service excellent.

There are so many restaurants and cafes to choose from, so I'm happy we found this place. The waitress was very friendly, and the food was excellent. I had the quiche and my husband had a salad and garlic bread. It was all delicious.

We ate outside having a delightful meal with our friends. We all enjoyed what we ordered. This is a tiny restaurant with very good food. We had to wait for a table, but it was worth it.
