“Excellent dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2014

We had a simple dinner with friends; we arrived without a reservation but were given a table without hesitation and judging by how busy they became within an hour we were very lucky!
We picked the middle range table d'hote menu which was 3 courses with amuse bouche, a sorbet and coffee; the local wines at E15 to E20 were excellent. Our French was perhaps not up to standard and as all the conversation was in French - they appear not to have English speaking staff - we may have missed a bit of culinary info!
It is however a warm and cosy typical Logis style dining experience and was most enjoyable.

“Great food, poor service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2014

We recently visited Hostellerie des Ducs on a family holiday to France. This restaurant was recommended by the owners of the house we were renting. First impression were good when we booked although the person taking the booking seemed a little disinterested. The food was of very good standard, was interesting and excellently presented. Each course was well thought out and we were also treated to a very nice amuse bouche. The cheese selection was also very good. The service however was very poor, un-attentive and at one point quite rude (We were told we had already chosen the children's food choices even though we hadn't seen a menu yet). I would recommend visiting for the food but be aware the service you receive will likely be of a low standard.

“Lovely dinner - nothing outstanding but certainly nothing to complain about ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2014

Dinner x4 adults - we all had totally different menus which they accommodated well. The lamb was a definite highlight. Puddings were a bit 1960s and old fashioned. Setting is slightly odd - feels like time has stood still for 20 years as does the food. Was a perfectly lovely evening with good service and good food.

“Great value midday menu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2014

We have eaten many times at this excellent restaurant. As always the quality and service were great.

This review is to record how good the fixed price lunch time menu at 15 euros was. Even with a bottle of wine and coffees the total bill was only 50 euros - great value!!!!!

“French food as it should be”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2014

Nine of us visited here for a food experience and we weren't disappointed. The menu was up to standard just like the old days. We mostly ordered from the cheaper menu which was very well presented and executed. I certainly would love to go back and try the menu gastronomique.
