I stopped here solo on a Tuesday evening. I enjoyed a warm sunset on the terrace.
I choose a full Menu Retour du Marché, stat was very kind to swap fish with meat as I opted for a glass of red wine (€ 8). Excellent raw materials, portions a bit limited. Overall 5 out of 5 even if it's a bit pricey as you get an apptezzer and an avant dessert, very good bread.

This restaurant has a very pleasant terrace and eating there on a nice day is really a enjoyable experience. The food is very good, and nicely presented. Nothing exceptional but certainly enough to enjoy the meal. Our fish was specially well prepared, and the very sweet pineapple /foie gars starter was an original preparation. Side dishes are however mostly less convincing (the peas purée was very basic and unseasoned). Nice desserts. Service is young and not too professional. Prices reasonable. Overall nothing stratospheric, but a good address for a pleasant meal in a nice setting

Came here for lunch on a nice Sunday with outdoor seating. The setting is nice, as it was busy the service was kind of slow and came across as a bit stressed. The food was ambitious and nicely presented but the taste was not exceptional (eg. I had the goat which was just bland and the foie gras was accompanied by a cake, which did not fit), i.e. nothing I will remember a long time. Portions were quite sizable for a gastronomic restaurant, price/quality ratio is ok.
Overall good but not exciting.

Beautiful food in a lovely setting, the fire was roaring in the main dining room fireplace, but it would have been equally nice to eat outside on the terrace in the tranquil garden. We chose the 4 course 50 Euro menu (starter, main, cheese and desserts) and this was supplemented by a gazpacho amuse bouche and lemon sorbet palate cleanser, coffee and petit fours. All dishes were delicious and beautifully presented and the cheese chariot was amazing. They even had a children's menu!

Stayed 2 nights in nice room with view over the valley. But needed a PhD to work the complicated shower. Ate in the restaurant both nights which was excellent. Breakfast was ok with good coffee. Swam in the outdoor pool which is a reasonable size. Also did massages which were very relaxing and we followed up with a wine tasting session organised in the cave below the hotel. Nice location for gentle walks - reception has a list 14 walks available. Hotel has a very cute chapel in honour of Saint Jacques.
