Dined tonight at this restaurant and was pleasantly surprised by the delicious food and superb service. We chose from the €33 menu and had a crab and grapefruit starter, fish and a lemon tart. The flavours and presentation were superb. Would highly recommend.

This restaurant built a big reputation in years past, but nowadays the food is only slightly above average, service is cold and impersonal and menus overpriced.

This is just out of the main town but next to the Hotel Mercure; it is mentioned in many reviews of that hotel on this site (but strangely not reviewed in its own right). The food and service are of an exceptionally high standard. There...More
