We had a table outside in the garden which is really nice- quiet and peaceful. The staff was very helpful and professional. We had their menu saison which was really good from start to finish. I would go back.

Small menue but excellent choices, fish, meat or vegetarian. For a 3-course meal standard charge is 32,- Euro, which is a very good price for the offered quality of food and service. Great ambiance in the garden, complete with outdoor kitchen. Worthwhile to pay this...More
