Lovely place to eat, sat on the terrace in the sun, nice relaxed atmosphere. Staff were efficient and friendly. Very good vegetarian meal and very reasonable prices. Would recommend highly.

Very well priced and imaginative set luncheon. Lovely starter. Steak or fish main. Lively sweet course. House red very smooth. Word has it, however, that sometimes the food is not so good. Could be that Chef David is the key so it might be prudent to confirm he is on duty. Outdoors is lovely. Indoors is not for the aged... More

I have been many times to this restaurant, which is always good and fair value. Fish soup is great, foie gras delicious, good range of main courses and, unlike many places in this area, open most days most of the year. Elegant inside or nice terrace.

Visited again. A popular place and assured of good food. Went at lunchtime and had a menu du midi. Not too busy but was midweek and out of season. Sat on the terrace in the shade. Staff attentive without being too fussy. Food was good as always. Duck salad starter, veal main course and a chocolate gateau for dessert. A... More

The restaurant is located in a typical house from this medieval village, which belonged to a mystery book writer named Pierre Véry, a lot of them adapted in famous films from the prewar and war period such as Goupi Mains Rouges. The atmosphere of the restaurant is welcoming, nice decoration and the food is good. Great wine list. Service is... More

We ate here on a Thursday on Friday night in December many of the restaurants are shut at the is time of year. The waitress on the first night was very good not so good on the second. The food is average apart from the beef carpaccio which was delicious. Their was a good selection of wine but like the... More

I just want to thank the chef and staff (and the owner, of course!) yesterday for a most memorable meal at lunch time. I went there with a co-worker for a lunch break and though the service was slow, as the restaurant was packed, the main course of pork was out of this World! The whole meal was a treat... More

Friendly attentive service. A choice of simple comfort food. it was open on a midweek evening in October when everywhere else was closed. It was like a mirage. Full marks for that. Not surprisingly it was busy.

This place manages to achieve rave reviews on Tripadvisor, despite serving very poor quality food - don't order the tough grissle-and-tubes steak! The staff and management offer you their own unique brand of je-ne-couldn't-care-less attitude towards the complaints that they receive from angry customers. In the UK, this place would have been forced to close down a long time ago.... More
