For a strange reason, the gastronomes in the region have all settled there, and now you have two restaurants with Micheline Stars, Claude Sens, and Felix, and as this is not enough in front of the Town Hall you find 3 excellent and more reasonable priced restaurants where the food is excellent, Le Café Brunet, Le Clocher and Le Petit Prince.
