It is a set menu at the weekend - the choices are varied and the food was very tasty,well presented & excellent value for money. Would thoroughly recommend this restuarant if you are in the... More

I have stayed in St Chinian many times and have eaten in all the restaurants over the years. The visit to La Caleche this year was a really pleasant surprise. The food was excellent, well presented and good value for money. The €32 menu had variety and had a good choice of typical French dishes, well cooked and visually excellent,

We were a group of 10, including 4 children, who arrived on spec in the early evening on Bastille day. The staff were very welcoming and went out of their way to accomodate us despite the fact that they were obviously expecting to be busy later and needed to re-arrange tables. We chose a variety of starters and mains from... More

Rather inattentive service here. Food was not as good as we had expected. Not bad but rather disappointing. The opening days on the website don't seem to match what it says on the restaurant door,

Stopped here for lunch as part of a tour excursion. The fixed meal included poached Salmon which I am allergic to so was asked if I would mind steak. A piece of beef skirt arrived which I struggled to cut with the knife and after one piece I found that I could not reduce it by chewing. I would not... More

We visited this restaurant today, not expecting much, after a bad experience at another establishment in this village on Sunday. We were in for a favourable surprise. The food and service were both very good and we will revisit the restaurant later in the week. We decided on glasses of house wine and sparkling mineral water to accompany our meal.... More

St Chinian's not a big place and it's not hard to believe this is the best restaurant in town. Sensible dining room, pleasant and professional staff and an interesting menu. Our group had a variety of dishes - prawns, duck, lamb - for our mains and they as well as entrees and desserts were also beautifully cooked and well presented.... More

Lunch on 13 September; excellent foie gras entrée, and the grilled shrimp and scallops were perfectly prepared and delicious. Salmon in paper was beautifully presented, and much enjoyed by wife and sister-in-law. Café Gourmand was the perfect finish to a great meal. Hard working hostess and chef made for a wonderful afternoon. Can't wait to return.

My family has been dining here regularly for the past 10 years and always thoroughly enjoy it. My favourite is when it's lobster season, la caleche do their lobster beautifully. If your visiting st chinian or in the area, it's definitely worth popping in for a lovely example of French cooking!
