Lovely setting, small restaurant, delicious food

This restaurant has been totally revamped a few years ago, and the decoration is awesome - the old wood panels are lovely and polished, the furniture, lamps, etc. very modern, a very striking and intimate setting. Don't be fooled by the very small menu you can see outside. There are many specials not listed. The owner is the chef, and there is one waiter, so it's a bit slow, but acceptably so, and definitely worth it.

Last time I was there, we were a table of four, and had: - Appetizers: Three of us chose the froglegs, delicious, deboned, with a cream and chive sauce. The other person had zucchini with porcini and morrels. - Main dishes: Two of us had the veal kidneys, perfectly cooked, served with assorted vegetables and rice (I didn't like the rice, it was mixed with wild rice which I don't like, and dry, instead I ate the delicious bread). The other two had quail (deboned) in a maple syrup sauce, excellent (same side dishes). - Dessert: We all had the panna cotta with a "raisinée" sauce (raisinée is a local specialty of apples and pears cooked for 24 hours till you obtain a dark brown sauce), yummy. We drank lots of mineral water and 2 bottles of Madiran, and found the price to be very reasonable (close to 100 sfr per person).
