Unlike Rosemary m, three of us had some exceptional food. From their a la carte we had roast lamb with kidneys, roast lamb without the kidneys and roast duck breast. All were beautifully cooked and served with vegetables and French fries also very good. The puddings were even better, I had the fresh fruit compote heated in a casserole. I... More

My husband had the monkfish which was dry and overcooked and I had roast lamb with veal kidneys which were like rubber balls ,completely inedible.Told the waitress when... More

Good service and very good food. Would return reasonably priced. Very clean and set out well. It is right in the middle of the town and easy to walk to.

Interesting flavors and twists on some traditional Normandy dishes (and some not particularly traditional). We had kind of a duck rillette (shredded duck on sweet potatoe and regular potatoe, a mix of appetizers (including a devine cauliflower soup), escargot and morel samosas and a lovely pork curry. Really enjoyed it. Good wine list, and a very attentive and hard working... More

This place was great, it's right by the fountains in the middle of Bagnoles, so you can take in the atmosphere of the town and do some people watching. The fountains are lit up at night, it's very romantic. The service was very good and we didn't have to wait long for either our table or our food.7 I had... More

We have lived in the area for a few years and hope to try all the restaurants in this lovely spa town; when a retaurant has the title 'gourmand' in its name, it has something to live up to! Decor is modern, service was good and the food a bit 'cheffy'. We had the very good value set menu -... More

This was my second visit. The first one was barely satisfactory but I went this time with friends. The service was slow. My steak was badly cooked and I left most of it. The food was served on very cold plates. When I complained it was met with a shrug of the shoulders. I speak excellent french and explained exactly... More

Superb food, beautifully presented and tasting fresh and full of flavour. Nice choice of courses from fish to excellent steaks with delightful mouth watering desserts. We ate here as we were staying overnight in the hotel and cannot fault any aspect of our brief time here.
