Service was very good and the small courtyard was a pleasant place. Full at lunchtimes, so book ahead. The lunchtime menu had some choice and the food was good and served promptly. .

I spoke to the owner Chef before we booked and he made an absolutely lovely vegan meal for me, with roasted aubergine, delicious salad with avocado and apple, wonderful to get this in a small town in France. Make sure you talk to the chef,...More
