“Lovely View”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014

Such a beautiful view! I was looking for a change from the usual country French cooking - something lighter with more vegetables. I had cod with salad and mixed vegetables and it was very good. The tart-citron meringue was home made and excellent. My husband said the faux filet was OK and was a little less enthusiastic than me about the meal but agreed that the setting was unique. Give it a try! I don't think you will be disappointed.

“Good food and lovely view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

We had lunch here. The food was good and the portion was not small. The price was reasonable. It cost 100€ for 4 set menus, 4 drinks and 3 coffees. The service was good and the waiters were friendly. The view was lovely even though it rained.

“Scrumptious meal with a great view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2014

What could be better than a well-prepared mi-cuit foie gras, followed by a tasty, perfectly cooked maigret de canard, delicious potatoes and veggies, and a classic French dessert, une religieuse (like and eclair but ten times better), made by the resident chef (Yves Lebastard), served up by a friendly, helpful waiter (Jores, from the Aveyron), with a view on Rocamadour and the entire Rocamadour valley? This restaurant gets a five-star rating from me because the overall experience was just marvelous.

For English-speakers with little command of French, the waiter speaks English competently, and his good sense of humor makes up for any minor deficiencies. For those English=speakers with come command of French, he'll work with you. In any event, you'll find him charming, knowledgable and solicitous (he returned four times during the meal to ask how we were doing). The chef also came out of the kitchen and spent a good long time speaking with us, which is always a nice touch.

As a couple who have spent a long time in France on many trips, and now live there part of each year, we're fairly discriminating about restaurants. And of course, you always wonder in a tourist place like Rocamadour. But we'd return to this restaurant in a heartbeat, and will surely direct our friends there. I'm certain that you'll like it.

“excellent price/quality with fantastic view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

The menu we had was perfect: all dishes were very nice presented and most of all tasted very good. The waiter was very friendly and knows his stuff. Excellent price/quality balance, not always easy to find. And on top of all this: a lovely view for free from the terrace overlooking the roofs of Rocamadour and surrounding valley.
