Visit Le Caveau restaurant or Brodys Bistro to see why they’re both listed among our favourites. They are sited in and above respectively, the old dungeons.

You can see many relics and reminders here of the past. Some adorn the walls and features of the modern day buildings, and bear testament to the same.
