The Patio Restaurant Review

: This unassuming spot cannot seat many more than a dozen guests in its small wooden structure along the road. The kitchen does their best to work the local ingredients in a French-oriented style with dishes such as shrimp Proven├žal. The intentions are praiseworthy. However, the preparations would probably benefit from simplification, for instance, when a too-pungent mushroom stuffing fights against the scent of the delicate crab meat. Rather than in the smallish room on the street, choose to dine al fresco on the patio, in the back far from the traffic with the pleasant whisper of the rose- and honeysuckle-wrought iron fountain.
