The decor fits the name, with a tile floor, old French posters, dried flower bouquets hanging from the ceiling, and newspaper cuttings on the walls. The larger room is flooded with sunlight and bedecked in greenery with an immense view across the valley, but come sundown the call from the cozier warmth of the front parlor draws those looking for romantic lighting and convivial chatter. The menu leans French, with fillet of French Charolais beef or sirloin steak from Limousin beef. For relatively lighter fare, try the fish creations, such as Scottish salmon smoked on-site. The three-course lunch is a good bargain.
