This is cozy village restaurant serves surprisingly high-end traditional French cooking. The 22-euro lunch menu was a sumptuous 5-course feast, balanced, well-paced, and elegantly served. Our bottle of local Marcillac red wine (also just 22 euros) was a perfect accompaniment. Sharp and creamy Roquefort cheese from the nearby Roquefort caves appeared in several dishes. The seafood ravioli are especially good.... More

Came to Tournemire for the Brocante market to celebrate July 14 and discovered this restaurant next door to the Mairie. Arriving early for lunch we had choice of table on the terrace - the setting was so quintessentially country French. We ordered the 22 euros menu which far exceeded expectation with Roquefort featuring in several dishes including the carpaccio of... More

Charming auberge with amusing parrot chatter as well as warm welcome from owner. Sunday lunch was excellent value with delicious dishes with tastes of Roquefort in several. It was too hot to eat on the terrace so we ate in the characterful dining room. Excellent longe de thon; creme brule was perfect.

This small town restaurant is in Tournamire, just a couple of kilometres from the cheese town of Roquefort which naturally features heavily on the menu. The restaurant is surprisingly large, has some impressive architectural features such as a large carved plaster ceiling but overall give the impression of comfortable country restaurant which has grown up over the years rather than...

Excellent price/quality. We enjoyed the dishes from the menu du jour which reminded us that we were in Roquefort country. All the menus looked delicious, ample and well presented. The atmosphere was very pleasant -- our server seemed to have a perpetual smile -- and the decor was full of charm. There are three distinct eating areas, a sunny terrace... More

We had been recommended to try this restaurant by various friends. The food was well presented and the staff very friendly. It is not the sort of restaurant where you would to go for a quick service meal. It is a restaurant where one can savour the food.

On the recommendation from one of the sales people in Roquefort, we decided to eat here. It was excellent. The mint sorbet soup was a highlight of the meal. We returned several weeks later with guests and had a similarly excellent meal. Many of the items use Roquefort and this adds to the dishes.
