Lovely little find of a local restaurant situated in a typical French village. The choice of menu was excellent with local specialities. We had a set menu of salad, duck, cheese course and Tarte Tatin, all of which were delicious, Great value for money too. We are exceptionally grateful to our hosts who recommended the restaurant not just for the... More

From the setting and the atmosphere - on a beautiful terrace with a small pond with flowers and fish -oto a superb meal, this was an evening that will linger in the memory for all the right reasons. The main course of 'cabillaud' (cod) in a Thai sauce, pitched just perfectly was absolutely superb. Both starter and dessert were also... More

Thank heavens for Tripadvisor because we would not have found this little gem in this charming village. Excellent and free parking nearby, was a good start. The alfresco dining area was cool and relaxing on this very hot day. Service was extremely friendly and efficient. This is not fine dining but so what! Rustic French cuisine at its best is... More

Olga and Eric are a delightful couple that make you feel you are in their personal dinning room, The food they prepare is fresh and scrumptious!!!! Definitely a must to eat at if you are traveling in this area.

Castelfranc is a small charming village that will do well to keep this gem of a restaurant a secret. This is a really good place run by two people who clearly understand and love food. The home made Foie Gras two way was exceptional. The red wine version took this local obsession to a different level. The duck with orange... More

The food is excellent and when combined with outstanding service this is not to be missed. We enjoyed it so much we went twice and my wife ordered the same food twice. Most of the meats are bbq in front of you if you are seated in the main dining room near the kitchen.

This restaurant is a real gem! We ended up there on a Sunday night, when everything else was closed around Puy l’Eveque and this place was a great find. The kitchen is opening onto a cosy room with a big fireplace in the middle used by the host, Eric to grill the meat. The owners (a couple: Olga in the... More

The Lot is blessed with many small local restaurants serving local food at reasonable prices. This is a little different because of the indoor barbecue on which much of the meat is prepared. The food is uncomplicated, but the ingredients are of a good quality and presentation, while simple, is attractive. The meat was a highlight. There is a menu... More

We were recommended this restaurant by Tony and Karen at La Therniere in Prayssac - and we were not dissapointed! The food is excellent and, according to the meal chosen, cooked on the open fire in the dining room. I had a steak on one evening which was so tender it really did virtually "melt in the mouth". We also... More

We were looking forward to returning here as a highlight of our annual stay in the area. Yet again we were not disappointed - the food and service provided by Olga and Eric was outstanding. Very tasty set menu at 24 euros - good value and well priced wine list, house wines are worth a try. A very enjoyable lunch.
