“Cosy, friendly and original”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2011

The restaurant is small (make sure you reserve in advance) but perfectly formed!
Everything is done with care and thought. The atmosphere and service are cosy and friendly. The food is excellent, fresh, beautifully prepared and presented.

“Small, simple but very good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2011 via mobile

This is a very friendly and welcoming small restaurant. The food is innovative, features local fresh produce and is accurately cooked. Warned in advance that we had a difficult vegetarian with us they had arranged a special dish which was well received. Service is a little slow as the couple try to manage the front and back on their own but this is more than offset by the genuine charm and welcome. This is probably the most genuine destination in a rather touristy village. Well worth a visit but you need to book.

“Charming. Choices were delicious, well-presented, & superb service in a beautiful medival setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2010

On a reliable tip, I made reservations for lunch during our Provence visit for my Family here at the Au Vieux Four - A most pleasant experience that ended up being one of the real jewels of our trip! We each enjoyed our duck, veal, and fresh mushroom soup - all fantastic - our food and service was offered with such exceptional quality and care to detail. We all were completely satisfied and finished off the rest of the afternoon treasure hunting the unique shops surrounding the restaurant. Our only regret was not having another day to spend in Gourdon and another meal at Au Vieux Four. We'll have to return again soon!

“Great restaurant !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2010

We had an awful service at nid d'aigle so we went to this small restaurant. Great surprise ! No view but nice decoration, lovely service, and best of all great innovative food by a young chef and his lovely wife. Even the kid's food was delicious and original. We had a great time and highly enjoyed the fresh market food in this restaurant.
