Eating out when you have a food allergy can be a stressful experience. Seeing the reviews for this restaurant on TripAdvisor and reading that the owners were English, I contacted them in advance of our holiday to ask whether they were able to cater for someone needing wheat-free and gluten-free food. They replied speedily to say that it would not... More

We booked this restaurant as it was highly regarded on trip advisor and also personally recommended to us. The decor and ambiance in the restaurant is lovely and the food was wonderful - we had a delicious salad to start followed by the superb duck. My only criticism would be the service. Though relatively efficient, there is only one lady... More

We went here hoping to make a reservation for later in the week as everyone here said you needed to book, but by utter chance someone had cancelled at the last minute so there was a free table. Hurrah! Small but nice menu which was very good value. Main course was cod with a spicy coconut sauce and camargue rice... More

This restaurant is run and operated by a wonderful couple. The wife, whose name escapes me, runs the front of the house while the husband is the chef and runs the kitchen. Be warned that you must make reservations. The menu selections are creative and flawlessly prepared. I started with a salmon tartare followed by one of the best ducks... More

If your in Avigion, this is the place. Wife works the front and husband does the cooking. Service was excellent, food was out of this world, I would recommend the Cunard, the best so far after three trips in France. Have the local wine with your meal.

This small family-run restaurant was recommended by our friends, and what a recommendation. Proper local food superbly prepared and lovely no-fuss service. I started with the 'pie steak' which is marinated chopped steak with some lovely additions, and then the cod. No tiny portions here! All menu selections are at a standard 'menu' price, which I think is a brilliant... More

This is a fairly small restaurant and in great demand so booking is recommended - having said that I booked early on the day by email and got a prompt response. It's only open certain days so you do need to check it out by ringing - if they're not open the answer phone will let you know. It is... More

Undoubtably the best meal we have had for ages. SUPERB. Excellence at every level - from greeting to farewell, which is amazing based on the fact that it is run and staffed just by the husband/wife team that own it. We managed to get the last available table on a Saturday evening and witnessed at least 10 other couples try... More
