Dinner at the spooky Abbey

We had dinner here on recommendation and found it well worth the visit. The restaurant is very French in its decor and on the quirky side but the food was very good as was the bill.

Dreadful food, waitress who thought she was on stage. Shame as it is in such a lovely place and such a quaint building.

We visited the restaurant for the first time on Easter Sunday - quite by chance, we happened to be wandering around the Farmer's Market as lunch time approached and thought we would give it a try. We had the fixed price menu (19.95 euro) which comprised three courses. We also had a lovely cocktail aperitif. The food was tasty and... More

We rolled up at lunchtime to this amazing location not knowing what to expect. The approach is incredible - down a long river valley among peaks clothed in forest. As we pulled into the Abbey grounds in front of us was a sort of family area with a snack bar that looked quite attractive but we turned left up to... More

We chanced upon the Les jardins when doing a cycle tour of the Lac de Guerledan - I'm so happy that we did. The food was reasonably priced, absolutely delicious and considerably more interesting than standard restaurant-fayre. The restaurant itself has cosy, kooky charm inside, with tables outside in the beautiful surroundings of the Abbaye de Bon Repos. Our host... More

Visited here with my sister and brother-in-law who have a house in Bon Repos and who have eaten at this restaurant before. Wonderfully varied menu, our meals were fabulously cooked and presented, enjoyed in beautiful surroundings, and extremely well looked after by a lovely host. A thoroughly enjoyable evening and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend this lovely restaurant to anyone... More

I have been to stay here several times, and will be there again next week. The food is not only varied, but excellently prepared from a large variety of local ingredients. I have eaten all over the World, but this is one of the best anywhere. Where else can you eat pigs cheeks with hibiscus sauce, or pigs cheeks with... More

We had a lovely nights stay here on our cycling holiday. Our host was very entertaining and made us feel welcome. The food was excellent and enjoyed by both of us. The rooms were tired but very clean and more than comfortable. Would be happy to stay here again.

Situated in the ancient buildings of the Abbey Bon Repos, this restaurant offers the friendliest of service, and wonderful flavours from fresh, seasonal, local produce. Chef Martine easily accommodated the requirements of one of our party for gluten free, and the meals were obviously created with passion for flavour and presentation. The rooms offer a variety of tables suitable for... More
