Guides & Rating

Comment by the MICHELIN inspectors

Don't be fooled by the almost opulent, historic and elegant interior of the restaurant: Mario Sauer cooks fine, creative dishes from a range of excellent products - a successful contrast to fine fabrics, the sandstone walls, the beautiful green tiled stove ... friendly and trained service under Maître Gilles Duflot.
