  • Perfect back to the restoration of the past with simple dishes but with taste, of materials and foods costs, in short a hunting lodge as you can what memories. A decoration to the former but that take back us to our childhood memories. Finally a place and table that he mustn't forget to do in the area and especially book because often lacks space, you will find for example the terrine of wild boar served in his bowl "the haunch of deer sauce grand veneur, dessert menu and the day. As fresh and cooked products on-site to very few exceptions and with the full menus starting from €30 this refers at the same time a large majority of the classic restoration at a level well below with prohibitive prices industrial products, often not cooked on-site. I recommend very clearly that will fill you with the quality and the return to the sources of her kitchen.

  • Superb but only accessible place for payment... the owner is friendly if you set the right to visit 7 euros! If you want to stroll, go your way, or agree to a 3 km detour, the bridge is closed.. .and we do not cross the private site of the ironworks
