In the dining room:
Bright windows, a high ceiling and mouldings are offset by the Grey stone floor.
The clear, square shapes are perfect for conversations between two or more people. Low and high light-wood tables. Rich brown benches and modern grey-fabric chairs provide seating for forty or so diners.

This first dining room on a single level is understated, bright and comfortable. It is stylish and laid-back at the same time.

Upstairs, there is a second dining room on the mezzanine. The cosy atmosphere provides an intimate setting for couples, lively meals with friends or business meals. There are quiet corners and a table d’hôte for six to eight diners, in a warm and contemporary décor.

In the kitchen:
The taste in the essence of the ingredients, which are prepared to delight and amaze your palate.

Ludovic Bertholier, whose career demands respect, works with David, whose aim is to create an ideal setting in which locals can meet.
Their inexhaustible curiosity and taste for surprises come together to inspire a cuisine based on honesty.

Le Simple Goût des Choses is authentic and sincere.
The food speaks for itself!
Take a seat and let them take you on a culinary adventure.
