It's very rare indeed that my wife and I give a restaurant, even a very good one, all of five stars, but L'Ardoise absolutely deserves them. Everything we both had at lunch today was marvelous - starters, main dishes and desserts. The chef is a highly dedicated and enthusiastic professional who makes the most delicious meals, all homemade (and you... More

We went in because it was busy, which seemed like a good sign, and it was! Luckily, they had a table for two. We were the only non-French speakers there, but the staff spoke sufficient English...

You would not normally be looking for a restaurant in this area but it was in the same road and a few hundred yards from our hotel and so was ideally situated after a long day's driving.

A small resto away from the main tourist traps, only open a few evenings of the week and most lunchtimes. The menu is short, but well chosen and the standard of cooking was very good indeed. Decent wine list by bottle or carafe, charming service. Very reasonable prices too. Highly recommended.
