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.

We went to dinner at Le Gindreau. The greeting by the host was warmer for the French patrons , that for foreigners. And, my husband is French! That evening, the amuse- bouche was explained to the neighboring table, and for us there was no explanation. The food was average for the dinner price that we paid. The dining room was... More

The former owners of Le Gindreau have retired, and so this charmingly-placed restaurant enters a new phase. The setting - a broad terrace high above the village road in St Medard - is just as inviting as before. But the food, sadly, has changed. Gone is the elegant and delicious simplicity that used to make this address a 'go-to' destination.... More

There is little to beat the great food, relaxing location and fabulous wine and cheese selection. My only disappointment was not finding the foie gras cornet featuring on the menu.

We have over the past 6 years visited Le Gindreau. It was almost perfect, but now a new owner took over the restaurant and I fail to understand why they received a service award. Today the staff all of them failed to do the service you expect and are used to. Generally all in all it's a money making place... More

It is not always easy to find a quality restaurant where you can eat as well as a vegetarian as other diners. Le Gindreau is one such place - particularly if you give them notice. I posted a year ago that it looked like the baton had been successfully passed from the Pelisssous to the Bardets. After five visits this... More
