Had a family dinner in this place, the service was terrible, we had to wait over half an hour between the dishes, and the food was very very average. if you decide to go there, be weary of the pigeons, they are everywhere.

We arrived on a rainy night and were welcomed by warming glasses of Cognac which changed our attitudes immediately. The highest quality ingredients accompanied by excellent wines of the region, all served by one talented front of the house person. Terrific atmosphere.
