OK, but would not recommend

It was average to mildly disappointing. An appreciable effort is made towards food presentation but the food itself is not very tasty. We had a walnut pie for desert which was obviously straight out from the refrigerator (very hard crust). They could have at least heated it up a bit in an oven... read more

On our arrival into Richelieu we were tired and looking for a decent meal so we booked this place a few hours beforehand. The manager was an intensely rude man. He took the booking and dismissed me. I was not impressed but we returned a few hours later. After some very average starters which were made palatable by some delicious... More

We stayed and we had a really lovely meal and thought the staff helpful and professional and the food was 1st class no complaints at all. Please ignore previous write ups and try for yourselves.

Although there are many restaurants in the town, this was the only one open on a sunny Monday evening so we had no choice but to eat there. Situated well overlooking the square of the pretty walled town it has a delightful dining terrace. The menu looked attractive with many regional specialities but failed in the execution. The lacklustre waiter... More

As I said the wine was excellent, even noted it so we could buy some to take back to England. As to the meal. We have never had such a bad meal in all the time we have visited France Since the early seventies. The food had come out of a microwave I am sure.The waiter was surly and the... More

Three ladies traveling the countryside...amazing town, amazing people, amazing country, amazing food. We had ten days of great experiences. Except for this one place...We came into a nearly empty restaurant and were excited to see other travelers with whom we had met up with in several places, and greeted them, and chatted for a few minutes. We were then seated... More

Dear madam, You wrote that you arrived in a nearly empty restaurant : October is not le high season, as you said our town is a small one and we have only 28 seats so if you came in our restaurant, it is normal that we are not fully booked at this period. I said "if you came to our... More

Visited twice during a weeks stay in the area. First time was good, the fois gras was tasty as was the beef casserole dish. Staff were friendly and efficient. However, second visit was like somewhere different, very slow indifferent staff and disappointing food. Doubt we will return if in the area again.

Limited menu and not at all pretentious or costly. Wine list of reasonably priced bottle/jugs - mostly sourced from the region. Perfectly edible food, whilst not what I would choose for any kind of treat or celebration. It seemed that when we visited two staff only were doing everything - one outdoors, one indoors. Possibly they were over stretched -... More

This is not a place to have a relaxing coffee on market day in Richelieu! The small number of customers outside should have been a warning sign - but given that the other cafés were full, we gave it a try. No welcome, not a syllable of a greeting, unbelievably poor drinks - two out of three misdelivered - no... More

Having read the reviews, I wasn't that keen on eating here but, as we were staying at the hotel for 2 nights on our way back home from the Pyrenees, and we had already eaten at Fosse Saint Ange (excellent) the night before, the idea of eating outside in good weather took priority. The menu looked interesting and my starter... More
