Best to book here as If this was in Uzes centre prices would be double. Small menu but tasty well presented and well cooked food. Perhaps a small quibble would be that some diners were offered an appetiser at the table and others weren't. I felt deprived 🙁,

Located in what used to be the primary school of this quaint old village, l'Authentic did not disappoint. The menu is quite thin, which is normal given the remoteness of the restaurant, but it guarantees that all dishes are made of fresh ingredients cooked on the spot. Wine list, essentially local drops, has a good selection at al prices. Well... More

We had been recommended to this restaurant by friends and we were not disappointed. Whilst our table was in the school yard it was very pleasant. The staff were attentive and helpful and the food was excellent. I asked for a plate of cheese to finish and was served a selection of four with details of what they were. A... More

Great location - Saint Siffret is a charming backwater. The restaurant is an old school, complete with blackboards and ancient schoolroom posters. A very short menu and simple fare, really well executed. Great service.

The courtyard setting was very pleasant.service excellent.The fig tart to start was very good if a little too much pastry. The guinea fowl was ok but the skin looked as if it had been cooked earlier and reheated. Apologies if this is not the case! The mash potato I am afraid was not smooth at all and although the dishes... More

We have eaten here regularly and will no doubt do so in the future. The food is reliable but lacks a little imagination. We have had the same main voter three years running!!! Time to up your game!

Stayed nearby and visited on 16th July for lunch. The building and setting were lovely with a small carpark less than a minutes walk away. Staff were excellent and spoke English which was a huge help. Up to four courses with choices for the meat and dessert course. Great selection of local wines too. Every dish was delicious and beautifully... More

This is a traditional, small restaurant based in an old school. The menu is simple, but the food equisite. The service we received on both occasions we visited was outstanding. I was particularly pleased when asked to refer a wine, the owner did not immediately leap to the most expensive, but recommended a local wine which was mid priced and... More

The proprietor has invested a lot of effort to attract custom. His recent approach has been to offer any combination of one, two, three or Goumet dinner menu. All supported by his dedication to presenting a full range of quality wine, endorsed by his research and experience (try La Romance). His latest efforts have involved Musical Evening, using local groups,... More

Just to say we had (another) great evening at the L'Authentic in St Siffret. What a wonderful idea to combine delicious food and good music. We will be back :-)
