A small restaurant just outside the city walls, also selling wines retail from the cellar below. The friendly owner Richard Grocat with his wife Pépita in the kitchen offer a good home cooked-style of local foods, mostly sourced from organic suppliers. The wine list is excellent, though mostly of rather young wines, but prices are good. It’s a popular place amongst the local wine trade, so make sure you book.

Useful information: Tasting menu: €30 with five dishes or regular menu €23-€35 depending on how many courses you want. Closed Sunday and Monday. Closed three weeks end of January/early February and in August.
