Not very sylvan despite the name. But let’s stay honest, the dining room,
without being of a crazy gaiety, doesn’t resemble a monk’s cantina where the
vow of silence has been taken. But the ambience is calm. Entree,
buffet and plats du jour: broccoli cake, boulghour nature, purée et cocos bains
sauce forestière, soupe oseille-fenouil, etc….. Notice: alcohol and
cigarettes are strictly forbidden.

review lately and I thank him for that:
Rather small restaurant ran by a
middle aged (what seemed to be) couple (they were quite frisky when we were there 2 years ago....they obviously enjoy what they do...and enjoy doing it together). The food was great, and it was obvious that I wasn't the only one to think so - the place was packed when we were there (well it WAS a Saturday night) and there was a line
waiting. Good eats AND comfy atmosphere for herbivore and omnivore alike.)
