We enjoyed our dinner here. It was a long walk from our central hotel, but felt less touristy and more 'local.' The menu has standard pub fare as well as french bistro type food. Good drink selection and good service.

I had the spinach crepe with mushrooms, tomato, cheese and egg. Delicious. My husband had the beef bourguignon and said it was a bit salty, but good. For dessert he had the lemon sorbet and it was good. I had the salted caramel gelato and...More
