We had lunch here today having read earlier reviews. The food was varied and delicious and the service efficient and friendly. Most importantly, it was good value for fresh, home-produced dishes. Listen carefully as there are many choices. A printed menu might be an idea as we may have made different choices had we known the side dishes.!? Well done... More

Six of us lunched here for the first time today, and what a treat we had. We were given five choices for each course, with a full explanation of what we would get for each course, so there was something for every taste. There were no disappointments as all the food chosen was excellent - as was the service. No... More

Don't be fooled by the exterior looks, this is a simple but wonderful place to eat. Excellent service complimented by beautiful food expertly cooked, but not forgetting extremely good value. Well done the owners who should be very pleased with themselves, you have a gem of a place, thank you for a great evening. Lino Len

Essential to book a table at lunchtime, wide ranging menu available, friendly professional service and relaxed ambiance. If you enjoy well cooked french cuisine you will enjoy imaginative entrees, generous main meals and tasty desserts. In summer there is an outdoor courtyard as an alternative to indoors.

have eaten here many times and never been disappointed. The food is varied and the choices are different each time. Always book as it is very popular - the French come in droves. There is no menu as such, but a choice of 5 or 6 items on each course, and when they are gone they are gone. Food bought... More

If you want good, freshly prepared food - served nicely too, it's not just dropped on the plate - at a value for money rate (€13.20 for 3 courses at lunchtime with 5 choices for each course) then give this place a go. Good potions too with accompanying vegs/pasta etc. It doesn't look much from the outside and you eat... More

We staggered upon this after reading Trip Advisor reviews and must admit to being somewhat pensive about the decision. What a surprise. Yes, the hotel looks somewhat dilapidated, but this is a place the French go, and its excellent value for money, and the food is imaginative and incredibly well served. The man serving us was so quiet, so full... More

Have had a holiday home in the area for many years but never really gone to Fontenay-le-Compte, however this year we decided to venture out on small trips and try some different places. There is a great market in the town on a Saturday, you can park outside the restaurant a walk down. The restaurant is a great find we... More

Do not be put off by the functional interior nor the uninviting exterior. This is a fabulous restaurant: Imaginative menu, delicious tasting food and very friendly, efficient service. And when the bill came - a pleasant surprise. Will definitely be back!
