The food we had was very good, and it was possible to order the risotto dish without the goat's cheese that seems to be essential in all vegetarian options these days. I appreciated that but would have welcomed a slightly bigger variety of non-meat dishes on the menu (I counted only two vegetarian main dishes). Many of the mains are also served without vegetables; these have to be ordered separately and this can make the dishes quite expensive. Service was friendly and efficient, attentive but not intrusive.
Generally a pleasant experience but if you offer a free Kir as an aperitif as a birthday gift it should be made properly. The ones we had tasted like ordinary white sparkling wine and looked like it. When we questioned this, we were told that they put in very little cassis as it makes the aperitif too sweet. What nonsense! Also, inadequate chips came with the rather small half Breton chicken. However, the service was very good and we even got extra white chocolate auce to go with the iced berries. We had a charming waitress and the food was tasy and well displayed. A pleasant evening.
I had lunch with two girlfriends and we all throughly enjoyed the expeience. The staff were all very welcoming and friendly and most definitely service with a smile. The restaurant decor is very pleasant and spacious. The menu was extensive and there was also a separate lunch menu which was extremely good value. The food was well cooked and presented and we all enjoyed our meal. I definitely highly recommend it.
