A lovely unassuming restaurant, where you can dine in the intimate ground floor area, upstairs or outside in the small square. The staff weren't overly friendly, but were helpful. The food was beautifully presented and really delicious. Definitely a place worth visiting again.

Four of us eat in the open courtyard at the back of the restaurant beneath the wall of the cathedral. The menu was innovative and reasonably priced. The wine list is short rather than limited. The service was attentive and helpful.

We walked in after touring the cathedral; we were amazed at the quality of the food! The restaurant was booked so we ate outside, good move. There were 100% locals sharing our tables. Our waitress was the best in France, efficient and actually prompt! Highly...More
