From when we walked in to the final goodbye the staff here could not be any more pleasant than they were. I really cannot think of a single thing that could be considered to detract from the experience of dining here. Wine and food superb.

Whilst this is not the cheapest establishment in town we loved the food. Each course was a delight to eat. The beef was amazing.

Delicate but really interesting food. Great staff. Fantastic local sparkling Saumur rose served. Very characterful conversion of an old outbuilding. Overlooks the pretty garden of the hotel we were staying in.

Restaurant itself is architecturally charming and staff welcoming and attentive. Wine list is extensive but pricey. Menu rather bizarre choices and dishes themselves somewhat lacking in flavour. My wife and I were both smitten with the same alimentary problem the following morning. Hence overall we...More

Have been fortunate to have eaten here a few times and the experience is always first class. The food was exquisite, the accompanying wines perfect and the assistance of the staff very professional. Couldn't recommend this restaurant enough.
