Interesting restaurant with outside seating as well as inside. Good food well cooked with a man and wife team, wife as chef. Tried the artichoke soup followed by fish and pork cheek. For dessert we had apple tart. All delightfully presented and well served. Service was quick and unabtusive.

Ate here on a Saturday night with no booking, we tried our luck based on the fact it was raining and they were near. We were extremely lucking, everything we ate was impeccable, could not fault a thing. Service excellent, perfect fish, lovely wine. And very good value for the level of food that you got. Would highly recommend.

More formal in interiors and service than a standard bistro, this lovely restaurant has an exceptional menu with delicious selections and a varied wine list. Everything is presented perfectly and the service is impeccable.

We were disappointed - the service was poor and the patron became more and more irritating as the evening went. I like my service unobtrusive and efficient and it was neither. The menu gourmande was disappointing - flavours in the first two courses didn't really work; and overall we would not go back or commend to others.

With a group of 18 rowdy cyclists, the restaurant accepted a booking within 30 mins of opening time. Then then delivered a lovely three course meal and catered for me as a coeliac without difficulty. Excellent

We went for dinner. A charming restaurant with the choice of a table on the leafy terrace or the inside restaurant which is modern stylish but minimalist. The food was excellent and great value for money. The service was also great attentive,friendly,informed but not intrusive. A great meal and I would recommend without hesitation

A most excellent lunch for a couple freed of children for a special treat lunch. We were looked after wonderfully and felt really special'. The food was equally first rate. Don't just come here if in town but rather make a detour and enjoy, enjoy, enjoy. We will come back.

Since nearly one century, the restaurant La Gerbe d'Or is a place of familiar appointment for lots of Lochois. The "Tuffeau" breathes the perfumes of the seasons, the large fireplace-dreams of the coloured scents of the aromas, with sweet and savoury spices, and the porch is curved to pay homage to this place where cooking becomes gastronomy.
