I stayed at the hotel above this restaurant. As I checked in quite late, I decided to eat there as it also looked nice. The place was crowded and almost all tables were filled. Seemed very popular with locals and tourists. The ambience was nice...More

Always crowdy, so reservation is advised. We had good steaks and pasta and were served rather quickly and in a friendly way. Prices are above average, portions are large, ingredients are fresh.

Probably the most upmarket of the restaurants in and around the square. Service was fine and the food was good, I had a traditional beef stew, which was delicious. Three of us ate main courses and drinks for about 25 euros per person.

This restaurant was a bit more up market than the others in this area and the food nicely matched it. I had the roasted salmon with mash potato whilst my colleague had the horse special.

Fancy brasserie style, with a limited, well chosen menu of classical dishes with a twist. Lots of intriguing choices, and a couple well chosen vegetarian versions. Good beer choice and the white house wine delivered. Service was unusually friendly and helpful for our group of...More
