“Really lovely food in a very unusual location!”
Reviewed 3 August 2012 via mobile

We had a fab meal here.
We weren't at all sure what to expect as we entered a cave but the waiter was very pleasant and welcoming and quickly switched to English but also put up with our attempts at French!
It was a set menu of €23.50 each but we felt it to be excellent value as it included five courses, an aperatif, a bottle of wine between us, water and a coffee. The food was delicious and just kept coming! I can't pick a favourite part as I loved it all and I am normally quite a fussy eater but I would say don't come here if you want to choose what to eat.
There were only two other couples in the restaurant which meant the chef showed us how the bread was baked in the clay oven etc.
All in all a delicious meal with excellent service in a very unusual location. It was strange to be eating a a cave with no natural light but it was well decorated and although it was July the heating was on so plenty warm enough.
We would definitely go back if in the area again.
