“Hidden gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

Staying in a somewhat remote region of the France, we asked a local friend for a restaurant recommendation. The villages are very small, so we expected a very simple menu from a bar/hotel. What a surprise to find this beautiful little restaurant. Run by a husband and wife who have a passion for fresh ingredients and meticulous presentation, this restaurant was incredible. Excellent scenery from the patio on the village hillside. While you can't show up without warning (since they want the ingredients as fresh as possible), a reservation for the next day is well worth the wait. Very friendly (it helps that the wife speaks English and French fluently). I highly recommend this restaurant.
