We celebrated my husband's birthday there. Meal was really tasteful. I had lamb from Quercy, which was delicious. Good portions, kids menu was correct and we had a candle in the dessert for my husband. Service was of good quality and, in this restaurant, we...More

I'd describe this lunch as functional--the service was ok but not very friendly--we sat outside which is very close to the road. I found the food ok but not as good as other reviewers but wouldn't go here again
