Friendly, welcoming, and good grub!

We liked the look of the menu at Geneviève's, and the fact that the restaurant had a panoramic view over the lower town. Most of the local dishes are not to our taste but we had a delicious salad starter and then gallettes, savoury pancakes. They were delicious and surprisingly filling, and are... read more

We had a terrific meal here outside on the terrace. As a largish group no one was disappointed - in fact many baddies he'd that were stand outs. Worth coming to Saint Flour for!

Our landlady recommended this restaurant and we are so glad we went, despite having planned another outing. Every dish had the most amazingly delicious flavours. The 23 euro menu had incredible sounding dishes, some a bit scary..like tripe on toast...We chose different dishes and shared to get the full experience! Everything was out of this world! The restaurant is tiny,... More

Tripoux on toast topped with grilled cheese as a starter, then venison civet with little potatoes followed by bilberry tart. The flavours were outstanding, good presentation, generous portions. The restaurant was full when we arrived at 1 p.m.but the servive was efficient. A good meal in a fascinating town.

Hearty well made local food-friendly service, busy with locals, good 23 euro menu, excellent Pic St Loup red at 19 euros. Worth a detour if you are passing on the autoroute.

A small cosy restaurant with a menue that features local produce and typical cuisine. The service was very good and the attention to detail impressed. If you find yourself in St Flour, or even near by it is worth a visit if you would like to sample good food. Don't expect the menue to be in English and be prepared... More

If we had more time, I would've eaten there twice. The portion is generous but not too much, the presentation is perfect and the taste is really delicious. If you're visiting St-Flour, you have gotta try this place!!! And the 20€ menu with Entrée, Plat, Dessert is just unbelievable. We tried the Pounti, the Salade Genevieve, and the Potée Auvergnat....

During our stay in Saint Flour we had both lunch and dinner and both times the food was delicious! We went there with our 4 years old daughter and the owner made us feel very welcome. My daughter is still talking about the scallops and the sweet potato puree she ate there. Service was friendly and efficient (we went in... More

We have just had the misfortune to eat at this restaurant.It was poor to such degree that we can't understand at all the positive comments we have read on Tripadvisor.The quality of the food was really not good (some really strange combinations,such as orange segmetnts with everything) and the attention to customer service by the proprietor non-existent.To be avoided at...
