We stopped in for dinner with the family and had a terrific experience. The Camembert fondue was super rich and delicious, my salmon with goat cheese based sauce and potatoes was cooked perfectly and the sauce really broke got out the richness of the fish.

Rick Steves nailed this one! My wife and I had a fantastic two course meal with a bottle of the house wine, which was delectable and amazingly priced. Though my better half speaks French, the server accommodated my naïveté with proficient English. The cheese plate...More
