It's not the new Fritzl's (it's in that neck of the woods), but it's straightforwardly enjoyable.

I'd have gone there tonight -- if they were open.

Le Garage just instagrammed 2017 Michelin Recommended; well done. Michelin would never have understood Fritzl's.

Great recommendation Wilf - thanks.
Went there Friday night. Arrived early because we had an earlier appointment nearby. Had the Panisse starter, foie and poached leeks for apps and finished with the chicken for two. Nice Cotes du Rhone at a very fair price. Excellent meal. Would return.
Arrived at 6:20pm, no one was there. Finally a two top arrived at 7:30 and a foursome came in at 8pm. When we left at 9:15pm no one else was there - scary.
Spoke to the owner at length during the meal (she obviously had plenty of time on ther hands). She said they've been open for 14 months and business was good. If they're serving eight people on a Friday night (not open for lunch), I don't know how they survive. And they weren't expecting many more since only one waitress was in the house.
It's worth trying for as long at it lasts. Very sad.
