Four of us visiting had the menu degustation and some very reasonable rose wine. Can’t fault this restaurant and it would be top of my list to revisit if I were in the area again. Lovely room, lovely staff, lovely food.

We chose this restaurant over the one nearby just because it opened a little earlier and were extremely satisfied. The food was excellent. My wife started off with cervelle de veau (the chef's specialty), which she hadn't had in years and I chose the slightly...More
