The service in the restaurant was prompt, efficient and pleasant. The Maitre D was most helpful in suggesting a red wine for my wifes fish. We had an excellent meal; yes, the choice is small, but it was beautifully presented and perfectly cooked. Foie gras starters, succulent filo wrapped salmon, perfect and very good Ravioles aux langoustines. An astonishing and succulent cheese selection. My wife had a lemon tart for desert , that was good but not excellent. The Maitre D charged us for a half bottle of very good local red, i ve forgotten the name, even though the long wine list has no half bottles, Breakfast was good, a choice of excellent local cheese, jams, hams and very good bread indeed. Yogurt was sweetened, and all the cereals were sweet kiddie style. Coffee again was very good indeed. Lots of choices of teas.
Admittedly we had booked a basic room, but it was tiny and cramped, so I banged my head on the sloping roof. No bedside lights, the fridge was off when we arrived and a rather filthy rust mark of a can of coke in the fridge. Broken light, that was promptly replaced. Bathroom small, neat and clean.
More of a possible problem, the lift does not reach the second floor, and no one offered help with the suitcases.

This is a very good restaurant with rooms, but its an excellent restaurant. If you do stay here, either book a larger room or be prepared for very cramped sleeping quarters.

Getting the bad stuff out of the way: the decor of this restaurant is awful, both in the main dining room and in the small room where we were seated (and the small room's tables were very close to each other). The service was a bit spotty: perhaps a result of a large function in the main dining room. The quality of the food and the advice for the wine were both excellent. I loved a pumpkin soup with caramelised pumpkin seeds, and my veal breast (I guess that's what you call a poitrine in English!) was beautifully cooked. The wine we chose against the chef's advice was very good, but badly matched to our food (so the chef gave good advice). All-in-all, if you come just for the food, you'll be happy.

We trusted the trip advisor reviews & drove out of our way during a long trip. It was well worth it. We were welcomed by the chef himself, possibly the friendliest we have ever met.
The meal was great from start to finish. At lunch there is just one menu, everyone eats the same which is great if you are like me & have to make decisions all day long. At night they have a la carte.
We loved the experience & would heartly recommend it. We were so pleased we had made the detour.

Go & enjoy the moment. Life is short & making memories so important.

Great food, excellent service and good value for money. Highly recommended.
The chef and his staff are very talented! The restaurant is situated in a château and you may even stay a night or two!
