No criticism really. Perhaps could lay out the menu a little more clearly I.e. Indication where the galettes start and finish. Perhaps a box outline around them. Everyone very helpful and pleasant. Chairs nice and comfortable. Have been twice recently and really enjoyed. Certainly be back. Love your booking system. Thank you - very nice experience.
