This unassuming little restaurant has a chef of Michelin Star quality that knows sauces. I was there with a number of friends and made a point of trying every dish that passed our table. It was all delicious. The food is a delightful mix of modern French with the occasional exotic note, the sauces exquisit and the service friendly and... More

Small restaurant with Michelin star quality food for very friendly prices. Very talented chef in the kitchen and his wife serving. Small, relaxed place, only 10-12 or so guests, nice decor and (wonderful too!) no music! It was a warm welcome and special experience. Truly wonderfu, best dinner we had in a long time. Great but still very affordable wines... More

My husband and I were there for remembering of our beloved best friend who passed away a month ago. The restaurant is not so big but very right size for spending peace and quiet time with very good food. However their wine list is a little dear.

This was a fabulous dining experience. The passion the owners have for fine cuisine translates beautifully to the food and ambience. Not one of the six of us could have asked for more. We celebrated a birthday in style and would encourage anyone in the neighborhood (or who can get to the neighborhood!), to make sure to indulge a visit... More

We had the pleasure of eating here on our visit through Vichy and so glad that we found this place. It was one of you best meals in France. The chef and his wife were extremely hospitable and warm and the meal was fabulous. This place is a jewel and NOT to be missed when in Vichy!

We felt very lucky to have found this gem of a restaurant so close to our hotel. It is run by the chef-owner and his wife, and is fairly small, but the food is divine! We chose the €30 menu, and were blown away by the quality of the food. We don't eat meat, but the fish on offer was... More

it's been three weeks since we ate at this delightful establishment in Vichy. We didn't expect a lot. But we had a superb meal. It was artfully prepared by a chef whose love of fine cooking, respect for ingredients and understanding of what makes for a wonderful experience. The meal was an experience we will not forget, nor will we... More

We were warmly received by the wife of the owner and offered a fine table in this small restauant. It is situated in a nondescript street just off the centre of Vichy and only has about 14 seats. So you don't just walk by but must look for it. Though the restaurant is small the food is great. There are... More
