A delightful evening

For many years, we have been regular visitors to the Lot , but, this was our first visit to Le Gindreau. Saint Médard is a tiny village, easy on the eye, exhibiting a sense of history and almost certainly at ease with the world. Le Gindreau is a beautiful old house in a high position overlooking... read more

Seven of us were greeted by an elegant hostess and seated on a spectacular patio within hearing distance of a field of sheep, under trees with lights. We all ordered the tasting menu, with course after course of beautifully composed magic. The wait staff were professional, with sly senses of humor. The sommelier was charming, and told us all about... More

I went to Le Gindreau to celebrate my dad's 70th anniversary. The evening was warm and we sat outside in the converted schoolyard. The atmosphere was informal and light, perfect for a family dinner. The same applies for the staff; they were helpful and knowledgeable, but not obtrusive or stiff. The food at Le Gindreau is what to expect from... More

Each time we visit this restaurant we are truly amazed at the skill of the chef with flavours and presentation. Although each course looks beautiful, the joy is in savouring local produce put together in the most exquisite fashion to provide a mouth-watering sensation. The staff are attentive but not intrusive. The setting is perfect and after a summer storm... More

For the 4 th time we have eaten at the Gindreau with the new owners and again it was absolutely fantastic! My husband had foie gras wrapped in a leaf ( beetroot?) and he thought this was the best foie he has ever had! And we have often had dinners at 2 and even 3 Michelinstars! Every detail is perfect,...

This visit to Le Gindreau was for our wedding anniversary but we were accompanied by two friends who had never experienced the restaurant. As ever the welcome was wamr, the decor superb and the new menu cards were attractive. The meal was outstanding with a fusion of flavour, colour and interesting food. Two of us had the asparagus entree, followed... More

When the sun is shining , it's your wife's birthday, you are having lunch on the terrace at a terrific restaurant in the French countryside - it doesn't get much better !! Le Gindreau is French cuisine with a modern twist, the sole with truffles was a standout, but every course was delightful. Attentive staff with passable English and an... More

From the start it could not have been better apart from having to eat inside because it was not warm enough to eat on the terrace (but I doubt if that was under the control of the restaurant).On a warmer day I imagine eating on the terrace would be one of those life enhancing moments that are quite rare.

This meal was just sensational from the start. The amuse bouche were delicious, the starters amazing, main course was unbelievable and desserts very naughty. The multiplicity of flavours denotes a chef with a wonderful palate. The service was superb, as usual. This is a classy restaurant but you feel comfortable and at home, thanks to the friendly staff.
