Staff is reasonably friendly. As you can expect in France. But all the dishes I had from starter to dessert were really below any expectation. The sign said "new owner" but definitely things have not changed to the better. The problem is really in the...More

Not bad. Quite formal dining not really matched by food or service. Not sure about the dog in the restaurant. Could be an English thing- keeping dog and staff handling the food a bit separate.More

Visited on January 5th. Disappointing ambience. Staff unenthusiastic. Several advertised main courses not available. Main course for one guest served after others had finished eating. Not recommended.
