Great food and professional service

We have visited many times and are never disappointed. A proper brasserie with proper service. Quality food and a buzzy atmosphere. The service is always very efficient and professional. Definitely recommend it. Can be a little pricey if you go a la carte.

A good restaurant in the centre of Chatellerault recommended to us by the proprietor of our B&B. The fixed price menus were reasonably priced, the portions were generous and the dishes were well cooked and showed some inventive touches. Service was prompt, efficient and friendly.

A very uncomplicated regional French restaurant, popular with local business people and families; with a traditional menu, specialising in steak and grills. The service is friendly and efficient, the quality of the food well above average.

My favourite restaurant in the Vienne region. I first discovered La Ferme Saint-Jacques in 2005 and have returned on most of my visits to this part of France. Not only is the food exceptionally good and excellent value for money, but the staff are professional and welcoming, without being stuffy or casual. The decor and ambience are more bistro style...

we had diner here recently. We choose the 50 Euro shared steak - unbelievable. Beautifully cooked, sliced and served on two plates with accompaniments. Desert was just as good - I've never had a soufflé so good. Service A1

We ate at this restaurant on advice of our B&B Chateau de la Plante. Easy to find in the city center, high quality food for a reasonable price. Service was ok.

Lunch was carpaccio de boeuf and main was pave du saumon. Both dishes were top notch, beautiful ingredients, beautifully presented, real professional French style service from career guys who care about the food and dining experience. Lunch in Southern France as it should be.

Strolling around looking for dinner, this was the obvious stop. Unsmiling, coldly-efficient, passively xenophobic waiter showed us to a decent al fresco table. Ris de Veau on the specials obviously got my nod at which our new chum's attitude softened slightly. Ordering of a proper bottle of localish wine further challenged his deeply held views of les etrangers. By the... More
