Fantastic fine dining Fois Gras to die for, wine a little expensive. Cheese superb, service first class. Not far off it's first star i should think. A Must try restaurant, thoroughly enjoyable.

Been here a few times, never disappointed, marvellous stuff, great welcome, fantastic food! You must not miss this! The restaurant to the rest is amazing but the bistro at the front is exceptional (and generally full at lunchtime in the week - so book!).

It's worth visiting Montmorillon for this restaurant alone. I certainly never expected to find a Michelin starred eatery here! The menu was excellent, although there was a lot more variety, obviously, a la carte. We were also served tasty amuse-Bouches and a good choice of breads. It wasn't cheap overall, but then you wouldn't expect it to be. The portion... More

Looking for a new venue for regular lunches with friends, we tried the Bistrot in the Lucullus restaurant. We booked a table for 1 o'clock on a Friday lunchtime, and the bistro was pleasantly full. The surroundings are clean, modern and tasteful with light-hearted photos of the staff on the walls. We all chose the menu du jour at 13.50... More

Saturday lunch in the main restaurant was a delight. We all had the Formule. It was delicious and substantial (but not 'farmer's portions'). We had beetroot Salad or pate as starters, and followed this by confit de Canard which was delicately done and well presented, followed by a chocolate bavarois. While the meal was worthy of Lucullus, the price was... More

Le Lucullus, in the Hotel France, is a first-rate restaurant. The surroundings are pleasant, service is by a young and skilled crew, and the cooking is really, really good. Wine prices are downright moderate as well. Madame and I enjoyed a festive dinner on an October Wednesday evening, featuring the regional menu -- star of the show being a steak... More

Le Lucullus is The Hotel de France in Montmorillon's brasserie,we ate there at lunch time with our daughter who lives not far from Montmorillon. The lunch time plat de jour was reasonably priced and the quality of the food was excellent although the service was quite slow,it might have been down to being short staffed and restaurant being reasonably busy....

Popped into the bistro for menu du jour. Food excellent, good value but service was slow. Just one Waiter, with a young girl assisting. Bistro was very busy and Waiter struggled to cope. He also seemed to be covering reception too. Poor man. Need more staff. But ignoring that, we were pleased overall.

We had lunch and dinner here, in May and June. Both times excellent food, good service and a really moderate price. Cuisine is modern with a classic touch. Elegant & light. We had 3 course menus of €25,- and €37,-. A special quality is the vegetarian menu, which is -in my experience- quite rare in France. All very good value... More
