Located in the old quarter, this unassuming restaurant is a great find. A lovely, warm reception from the owner, who is chatty enough but savy enough to know when to leave you alone! The food is simple, concentrating on flavour and is presented well. Lovely ambiance, and value for money the restaurant filled up even though it was a cold... More

Friendly service, good food, afordable. Not surrounded by tourists. Although the usual street musician with limitted repetoire will hit you hear as well. Not high brow, or too fancy.

He plays great music and the walls are covered with images... More

This place is how you imagine a French restaurant to be - and yet so rarely is. Run by a couple, constantly changing menu, everything you eat is choice and of the moment and cooked with love. Cannot recommend it highly enough. This review is from someone who is ALWAYS disappointed with the food in rural France - not easily... More

First of all, make sure you book a table in advance as the restaurant itself is tiny and pack during weekends. The food was simply a pleasure. Good products, traditional recipes, fair selection of wine and entertaining owner/waiter. Do not miss if you pass by Angouleme!
