Seriously?  Had dinner here in Sept 2011.   Service was below the norm in France... just imagine that. It took forever for the only waitress to take our order and than bring out food.  Foie gras was terrible.  Lamb shack was hard.  Chocolate tart mediocre....More

Against advice we showed up without booking and got an outside table on a lovely warm evening without any difficulty even though they were busy. The food was excellent and very good value, less than 70 euros including a large carafe of wine. A local...More
