“Overpriced "bio" organic restaurant”
Reviewed 21 June 2013 via mobile

Started off well when all four of us had the mushroom en croute soup as a starter but downhill after that.

My wife's couscous with chicken was tasteless and you had to search really hard for a single shred of chicken. I chose the small local sausages which turned out to be pretty poor organic frankfurters. The salad - which you thought a bio restaurant would excel at - consisted of a few lettuce leaves, a couple of slices of tomato and a thin slice of cucumber.

A friends vegetarian salad with asparagus was exceptionally poor value, though when we commented on it, the chef came and explained that the ingredients, such as baby asparagus was an expensive commodity.

All the wine on the menu comes with the "bio" label as well which also means they can add a few euros to the price.

All in all we thought it not good value for money. If you're big on organic I'm sure you'll love it, but we just wanted a decent meal and didn't get it.

“So pleased to find this by chance”
Reviewed 28 September 2012

Being a vegetarian in France is not easy. We stumbled on this restaurant which had a mix of meat options and vegetarian options so was perfect for us. The meal was one of the best I have ever eaten, simple but tasty. The place is not huge so go early or book. Strongly recommend the lovely food. Some English spoken. Charming restaurant in a charming French town.

“Tasty Bio Food”
Reviewed 7 September 2012

Simple, but tasty dishes with bio ingredients. Friendly service. White wine was a little bit disappointing.

“Wonderful Little Restaurant”
Reviewed 3 October 2010

This is a small family run place that is authentic and provides excellent local, mostly organic, and seasonal cuisine. It seemed that the proprietors have a Alsace Lorraine regional specialties alongside local Franche Comte specialties but everything on offer was great. Highly recommended.
