Booked as a new experience having sampled many restaurants in the area. On arrival, the sheer size of the restaurant made one feel that it would be a "stack em high, sell em cheap" place. However, the foie gras, the scallops, and particularly the goat's...More

We visited Douelle for a lovely lunch based on its reviews & we were not disappointed at all. We had the Le Terroir menu and each course was a delight. We'll be back and will bring friends too.....

Well, what to make of this restaurant? Inside it looks nice but of course we went outside. There's a large hidden terrace, some decent tables and chairs, also a lot of plastic. They did not put much effort in selecting the furniture. The food is...More

I feel this restaurant is overrated. WE cam here twice while staying within walking distance. The first time for lunch, when we had a simple omelette and carafe of red wine, which was fine, but nothing special and the second time with a group, when...More
