Good food at the right price. If possible make a reservation as it can get crowded, we didn’t and got a table in the nice but noisy basement (coincidence or not, all families with little kids and babies got a spot in this basement).

Stopped for an hour to wander round this very picturesque village. Le Cantou beckoned and we enjoyed a very nice coffee and mint tea. Service was very good and the setting is lovely. We'll be back for a full meal at some point this Summer.

On a recent visit to this lovely town, we spotted this great family restaurant. Located in the heart of the village, the venue is large, with lots of seatings, and a quiet place near a tiny street. Service is efficient, and food is very good....More
