We had been showing off the area to family visitors when suddenly it was time for lunch, and in our usual manner had not bothered to book. Au Cabanon in the square at the top of Puycelsi was full and busy but the lovely Cloe sat us down with a drink while she organized a table, which didn't take long... More

All around great experience. Excellent food, relaxing environment. Host was so helpful, charming and spoke English well. Great service. Vegetarian menu as one of the options. Some English on the menu. Wine selection excellent. Regional food, homemade. Hope to get back - it was such a nice way to spend a lunch in such a beautiful town.

We have done this many times but his restaurant was never open so we dined at the cafe across the square There was only one diner in the restaurant when we arrived at about 12:15 so getting a table was not a problem. It looks like... More

Au Cabanon is one of the best restaurants we've been to. From the way that the host greeted us we knew we were up for a delicious meal in a very friendly and welcoming place. We've adored the food! I had Terrine charcutière traditionnelle as a starter and you could tell it was home made. As a main course I... More

I would really recommend visiting the medieval village of Puycelci. The people there are really friendly and the view over looking the valley is beautiful. I would also recommend having lunch/dinner at the restaurant "Au Cabanon". The restaurant is run by a lovely couple who are very friendly and try their very best to speak English to English tourists. The... More

If you are not planning on visiting Puycelci please make the effort to take a detour and search out this beautiful ancient medieval hill top village and the restaurant Au Cabanon. Whilst the menu is simple a choice of 3 starters and 3 mains and 3 deserts, the quality of the food is superb without being pretentious. All the food... More

Perfect venue for lunch with friends. The service was friendly and proficient. A limited menu but with interesting dishes a little out of the ordinary and well prepared.

High on a hilltop, overlooking the beautiful landscape of the Forest de Gresigne, far below, we were delighted to lunch under a huge mulberry tree canopy as we enjoyed the friendly chat and efficient service from our waitress. This restaurant is built into the old castle wall, and prides itself on using local products to prepare its meals. Ours included... More

The menu remains short and simple: two starters, two mains and two puddings; the cooking is perfection, and la patronne is sweet, charming, welcoming, attentive and conversational in both French and English. She was dismissive of the duck moratorium, blaming unhygienic élevage in other places, plus over-reaction to a single case of bird flu in France. In any event, her... More
