Went for my birthday on a Friday night with my wife. Had a starter of langoustines in pastry which were lovely. Main was semi smoked fillet of beef with roast veggies. Dessert was a very posh chocolate log with raspberry and beetroot sorbet.
I loved the meal and it's obviously cooked with a lot of love. I would ignore the 1 star reviews here, the only 1 star that counts in the Michelin one they have and deserve.
Can't wait to go back.

Thank Tompsk1969

This small but cozy Michelin-star restaurant was our choice during a business dinner on a slow Tuesday November night. It’s a bit off the city center but still OK to walk(15mins) and situated in a residential area. The food is what you would expect from a Michelin-star restaurant; creative combinations/cooked to perfection and excellent service. There were few things that should not be the case in a Michelin-star restaurants like butter packed in foil, bread is not special, the tables are so close to each other(this is by the way very normal in France) and some dishes the temprature was at the edge if not perhaps not warm enough. But overall we had a good dining experience. The best part was the cheese platter with the union chutney! Also the price for the degustation menu + wine of 100euro was definitely not expensive for the provided! The maitre is very attentive and friendly and took time to chat with us at the end of the night!

The restaurant is located in an attractive residential shopping area just outside the town centre but within easy walking distance. It's not large and just becoming established having recently gained its first Michelin star. It's run by a couple with the husband as chef and the front of house covered by his wife. The restaurant was full on the evening we went and I think it's growing reputation means that booking is essential. The food was light and well flavoured with many highlights. A particular favourite was a tomato soufflé served as a starter. The menu changes regularly and the have good wine list with a number of 50 cl bottles. Chatting to the owner after our meal (she speaks very good English ) they are keen to provide a good service and listen to any comments
Very enjoyable evening and ranks with some of the best meals I have had.
