Another small gem serving wonderful traditional French food in generous quantities! The owner, Boboss, and his wife are on the floor and very friendly and anxious for you to have a great time in their house. He speaks fairly good English also. As you get seated in this cozy quaint place you are brought a slice of sausage and glass of wine to snack on as you look over the menu.

The dining rooms are covered with memorabilia collected in over 30 years in this business and he knows the story behind every piece. Your meal will be finished with his flaming show of plum brandy if you ask for it. He spends a good bit of time table side pouring brandy from his “watering can” around the glass and then setting it alight with the candle he brings to the table. This way the glass is warmed and surrounded in the essence of this potent stuff. It’s fun and scary but he’s obviously done it a lot!

Our goose foie gras was creamy and nicely flavored and the “Bairds bread” a nice homestyle touch. I totally preferred his house crusty bread with it but it was also useful to eat with the house terrine that is served with a garlic-laden slaw. As with many things, the terrine is brought to the table and you serve up as much as you like. What we left was taken over to the next table that ordered it. Both entries were brought in good sized pots straight from the oven with serving plates which made sharing easy. Both rich and full of flavor. I guess

they expected Charles to dive into his rabbit because he was covered in a bib for that course. The rice pudding was not as good as I’ve had in other places which was fine because I was already so full at that time. If you save room for a couple euros more he will bring the serving dishes of some 9 different desserts to your table and you can feast as you desire. It doesn’t get more like eating in your grandparent’s home than this! Very fun!
