It becomes effective in full or partial payment by the Customer. In the case of partial payment, the balance remaining due must be paid by the Customer on the day of the service.

A partial prepayment per person is required from the Customer at the time of booking until September 1, 2024 and for a minimum amount of:

If the Customer does not confirm within three business days, invoicing will be drawn up based on the signed quote or pro forma invoice.
The Customer may, at any time, increase the number of participants indicated at the time of the original booking, if the event venue allows this; invoicing will be drawn up based on the number of actual participants.

Remote payment by bank card is fully securitised by SSL protocol and insured by an organisation specialising in online securitised transactions. Transmission of bank data takes place by securitised link and directly onto the website of said organisation. In any event, non-availability of the electronic payment service can in no case dispense the Customer from its obligation to pay for the chosen Services.

Gift vouchers and gift boxes cannot be changed or exchanged. They are not available on "festive dates". 

The offer is used for the services mentioned in the details of the online service, and any claim concerning a service not provided for in the offer - including options - cannot be accepted. 
Offers are valid for the duration indicated on the gift voucher or gift box at the time of purchase, the validity period beginning from the date of purchase and not of booking on the site. 
The purchase of the offer is carried out by the customer; on the other hand, the customer is not necessarily the beneficiary.
A booking, subsequent to the purchase, must be made for the use of the offer. Requests for bookings are made primarily on the restaurant's website, failing which by email or telephone.
The booking must be made during the validity period of the offer.
The beneficiary, with the unique code relating to the offer purchased, must reserve his/her service on the Service Provider's website.

The establishment reserves the right to set the dates of availability of services. Said services can be consulted at the time of booking.
If this period of validity expires, the offer is not reimbursable and will be considered fulfilled by the establishment. The offer commits a service by the establishment when the latter approves receipt of payment along with registration of the booking.
All confirmations are sent by e-mail on approval of payment by the establishment. The voucher will be accessible via the said e-mail using a hypertext link. The customer will then be able to download the voucher in PDF format by clicking on the link. The customer will then be able to print it out if necessary. The customer alone is responsible for making the voucher available to the beneficiary.
The beneficiary must log on to the restaurant’s website to confirm the date they are coming.
Should the customer or the beneficiary encounter difficulties concerning receipt of the voucher, they may contact the Service Provider using the information mentioned in the e-mail confirming purchase.

For gift vouchers, any confirmation is sent by email as soon as payment is validated by the Service Provider. The exchange voucher will be accessible via this e-mail using a hypertext link. The customer will then be able to download the exchange voucher in PDF format by clicking on the link. It will therefore be possible to print it if necessary.
