The menu was limited and not the cheapest but delicious: we had the tuna which was cooked perfectly for us (not liking it too pink... read more

After a lovely morning canoeing along the river, the people at the boat rental place recommended this place as a good spot for lunch and it was a great idea! It was very busy being a national holiday in France but it had lots of atmosphere and the service and food were great. We both chose different things from the... More

We ate in this restaurant by the side of the bridge over the Aveyron. The food was innovative, well prepared and not particually expensive. The staff were attentive and relaxed. Shall certainly go again.

if you can get a table by the riverside on a lovely summer evening you probably won't even notice that the food is nothing special, and a bit overpriced. In my opinion they are trying to give the impression of fine dining, but without success. The location is everything, so give it a try if that is what appeals.

Had a dinner here with family in early June. Absolutely gorgeous situation on the terrace overlooking the river. Loved the sounds of the frogs as darkness fell. Classic simple French cooking. Local ingredients. I had a simple dish of strawberries for dessert. No ghastly chantilly cream just a very good jus which brought out the flavour perfectly. Good monk fish... More
