Ate dinner here in June 2013, while on holiday in the area. Although we knew it no longer had a star we still had relatively high hopes. The setting is lovely, and the view from our table beautiful. The service was patchy. Although I try, I hold my hand up to not having the best grasp of conversational french, and make due allowance for this. We ordered drinks, and a few minutes later two glasses of sparkling wine were placed in front of us. We just assumed this was a perk of the tasting menu and were quite delighted, however shortly after a waiter bustled over, said nothing and whisked them away. As two fresh (I hope) glasses immediately appeared on the next table, we were left to guess that we had been given their order by mistake. It gave us something to laugh about, but an explanation would have been nice, and frankly rather than just taking them silently only to throw them away, it would have been much more charming to tell us and let us enjoy the unexpected bonus. As for the food, the starters were quite nice (husband had normal tasting menu, I had vegetarian) and the mains were ok, what let them down was the fact that the same sauces / garnishes recurred across the dishes which meant it felt a bit like eating the same thing just with a different meat or main constituent. It was generally cooked quite well. The definite standout feature was the desserts, they were lovely and well presented.
