Great choises, I certainly reccomend the steak and the tarte with cepes. Reservation is a must and... read more

My wife and I dined here. I had the foie gras and confit de canard - both excellent. My wife's steak and cep tart starter were equally good. She had a glass of champagne as an aperitif and spilled most of it accidentally. It was replaced free of charge - nice touch.

Have been going there for many years and the atmosphere and staff, as always, could not be faulted. As to the food itself, I had the set menu with Roquefort cheese pastry to start and fish and vegetables as the main course - and both were delightful. My wife however chose steak from the a la carte menu and when... More

Husband & friends had lunch today under the shade of a grape arbor in the quiet village of Paunat. The only noise was birds, bees and soft conversation. The food was just as delightful and the service was attentive as it should be. I look forward to a return visit.

This was perfect. Eating on a vine covered terrace in the open air with excellent food and excellence service with a sandstone fortified church to the right looming above and a grassy water meadow falling away to the left. Bien. Prices were more than reasonable.

Charming, friendly, incredible atmosphere, clean facilities, Green lawns, running water and beside all that excellent food. The site also has an abbey on the grounds, too beautiful. One can imagine the galloping hooves of the crusader horses arriving.

We were recommended this excellent restaurant and it didn't disappoint, located in a lovely remote setting with food to match. We were lucky with the weather so sat outside where tables are far enough apart but also close enough to enjoy the general atmosphere. Attentive, knowledgable, English speaking staff provided excellent service and we were not rushed at all. One... More

Simply outstanding. Not signed and not obvious you have to work to find this place, but it is alongside the Abbey in Paunat. Pleasant shady terrace with a lovely garden. Food is exquisite, albeit based on traditional French fare. Service is quick, friendly and selections are made from a daily changing set of blackboards. Wine list is extensive and reasonably...
