We went twice, and both times the food was great and staff were very friendly. We would surely recommend it and visit it again, next time we will be in Caen.

A large, but well laid out retaurant with subdued lighting. Service was efficient but somewhat impersonal. Our overall impression was of good quality ingredients used in dishes lacking a bit in their advertised flavours. Also our dessert - gratin of fresh fruits with toasted brioche...More
