I have eaten in a lot of gourmet restaurants around the world and can honestly say that this was one of the best. It’s a hidden gem! Yes it is more expensive than average, but the service, quality of food and ambiance reflect that.
We had the middle range priced menu with the accompanying wines chosen by their sommelier, which does knock the price up, but as it was an anniversary dinner, we were worth it! You can of course choose your own wines.
We were taken care of exceptionally well by all the staff, who looked smart and were attentive but not intrusive. The food delivery was timed about right, neither rushed or left waiting.
Prior to the meal we were given two courses of amuse bouche which were original and also delightful.
I can only thank all the staff for making our anniversary dinner so special.

Lunch was a present from friends. The ambiance was wonderful. The food, presentation and service was outstanding. It is worth the trip.

The owner of the b&b where we stayed recommended this place to us.

The location, next to the river, is very charming, just like the restaurant itself. We went for the basic 3 course menu, which in fact ended up being a 5 course menu, when you include the small extra bites before and after. Dishes were all prepared and decorated with style. I wasn't blown away by the starter (combination of tuna carpaccio and lemon sorbet), but main course and dessert were very nice! Great value for money!

We had Saturday lunch here on our way home from Puy du Fou (a-maze-ing!!), having found it on Tripadvisor - what a great find! Perfect situation with tables right on the banks of the Vendee, with ducks and waterlilies, etc. The food was excellent, 3 courses with a couple of choices each course, all delicious, for 32 euros a head - but with loads of delightful amuses-bouches as well, plus extra sweet things with coffee, and some really nice local white wine, which was very reasonable. Service just right, bill not excessive, and they have rooms too!! A truly idyllic little spot, and only about 5 mins from the Fontenay le Comte exit on the A83 (exit 8 I think?)
