Situated in the centre of the village but hidden garden which was peaceful and a joy. The service was amazing, very attentive and not at all ‘stuffy or pretentious’ as suggested in a different review. We chose the set menu for €45. This included 5...More

Just up the street from the magnificent abbey. The setting for this gourmet restaurant is a delightful enclosed garden with a formal dining area but a casual atmosphere. Superb preparation of food from a classical French menu. Don't miss this gem.

We had a lunch (two adults, two kids) and went there despite some negative online reviews. There is a large choice of "menus" starting at 23€ but we chose courses "à la carte" ranking from 20€ (appetizer) to 38€(lobster as a main course). Good point...More
