Miles Restaurant: creative and refined cuisine

The team of the Miles Restaurant is made up of two young restaurateur couples who met whilst studying. They wanted to create a place with a warm atmosphere and creative and refined cuisine. A good idea is to go at lunchtime and opt for "Le petit Miles”, €18 for a main course of your choice and dessert, or “the 4 Miles” (a sampling menu with 4 dishes) for €25. For dinner, try out the tasting menu with 5 dishes for €38. Incredible flavours to discover!
