We booked a table as Sunday & we were party of 6 - advisable. We sat nicely shaded under the trees on the terrace next to the pool (opposite side of the road).

Good choices on the €19 Prix Fixe menu, even for our 11 year old who is not 'enfant' category any more! Interesting merchant prepared wine list, the CdR "Les beaux gosses" was a fine choice.

Waiters are enthusiastic but bit disorganised, when (we assume) the owner appeared the service stepped up several levels!

Only slightly spoilt by a table of 3 very ignorant older people who chain smoked (and I DO mean constantly) throughout the meal with no care where they blew their smoke. Perhaps we should have been non-English as requested our table to be moved.

Otherwise highly recommended, sure we will return before we leave.

Reviewed 6 October 2012

We were passing through on a summer evening and decided to stop here to feed the kids. So it wasn't a recommendation of anything. We sat in the garden under the trees, very nice ambience and lovely scenery.

However the service was slow. Maybe this was because it was a little crowded, maybe they were understaffed... or maybe it was because the kitchen was in the main building across the road...

The food, when it arrived, was very good. But it was getting dark by the time we got around to asking for the bill.

Nevertheless, we would return just for the menu of local specialities, well done.
