This old olive mill is a beautiful setting both in winter and summer for its diners. The food is very refined but also can be so simple. They cater to the vegetarians and the vegans in our family with inventive dishes that are hard to find in other restaurants. The cheeseboard is enormous and the camembert soaked in Calvados is...

We only visited the restaurant and didn't stay over. Set in a restored mill with both indoor and outdoor dining. The outdoor tables with a view of a pretty hillside village. The food is beautiful and plentiful and the staff are charming. Sophisticated and a great venue for a special occasion. Not cheap (mid range set menu circa 50 EUROs)... More

You cannot see it from the road so you have to know the place in advance. This place is very charming (the mill is renovated like it was 100 years ago), the food is really tasty (probably the best lamb I have tried) and the waiters are friendly and funny... do not miss the cheese table with a huge selection.

Refined cuisine served in a beautiful location. The service is perfect, the personnel are attentive without over doing it. We eat there regularly it's our number one restaurant in the area, for it's excellent food, service and value for money. If you want to treat yourselves this is the place to go.

Went here once with my wife, had a good dining experience, good food, good wines and good atmosphere. This time, I went over there with 11 people (6 kids) during lunch time. The staff did their best to accommodate the children with a special menu enfant. Other than that, during our other courses, the kids could roam the jardin freely... More

Always enjoy dining here - outside in the summer and in the cosy dining room in winter. One of the outstanding settings in the area and a pleasure to be served by pleasant and efficient staff. Good and varied menus at reasonable prices.

I am sorry to file a critical review when so many others have found the restaurant faultless, I guess we picked the wrong night. The setting is wonderful and the ambiance a delight. We arrive with the Patron in attendance and a staff of three that we saw. Having studied the interesting menu we opted to select from that table... More

Just had the perfect lunch, in the beautifully converted olive mill, the setting is just perfect as are the staff, we have been eating there for some years now and the standards are very high. The price may be slightly higher than some of the other local restaurants but value for money it 10/10. Only thing to remember is book... More
