  • What information do I need to provide to make a reservation?

    A credit card is required for all reservations made via our online reservation system, you will have to complete a form with your credit card details. You will need to provide the 16 digits card number, expiry date, security code (last 3 digits at the back of your card) and the full name of the cardholder. Please note that the expiry date must be the same or later than the date of your reservation, if your card is expired, the pre-authorization will not be processed.
    This is a debit authorization without cashing, no amount will be debited. Your meal will be due on the day of your reservation.
  • How does the restaurant use my credit card details?

    For your protection, our reservation system will check the credit card details with your bank on a secured server that encrypts the information. Please note that in some cases, the pre-authorization on your credit card might be declined. This situation can happen if you exceeded your limit with other purchases made on the same day. This is a pre-authorization for guarantee only, we will not charge the credit card. The full amount of your bill should be settled on the day.

    Notice: The pre-authorization process depends completely on an internal functioning of your bank. We noticed about the specific functioning of some foreign banks for which the demand of Pre-authorization acts as télécollecte (transmission in bank for compensation) and thus as an express debit for credit card older. For information this debit does not act as the reservation payment, but only as a guaranty for your booking. Legally this debit from the pre-authorization will be cancel 7 days after your reservation, if this transaction is not cancel beyond it, please contact us.

    In the event that a booking is not honoured or cancelled with less than 48 hours notice, a 190 € fee will apply per person. This fee will be equivalent of the complete pre-authorization fee depending on your reservation.
    A reduction of the number of guests must be confirmed 48 hours prior to the event as well, otherwise a 190 € fee per missing person will be charged.
