This used to be a wonderful restaurant, probably the best we have experienced in France, when the Wident family owned it. But in the couple of years since they left, standards have slipped. It is all in points of detail. The beautifully laid out tables...More

This is our favourite place for lunch whenever, over the years, we have come for a day or three to France. We believe there is relatively new ownership and, if anything, the quality is even improved. The atmosphere in this character property with high ceilings,...More

Closed Monday to my recollection, as are many French establishments. I don't think Gluten Free features on the menu , but it may be worth e.mailing, via their web site. The new management may have included this in an update.
