“Will not disappoint”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

I can really only echo the earlier reviews in that this is a great find in a small rural village. We ate there this week and opted for the set menu lunch which was amazing in quality and quantity. The lunch set menu (menu de jour) provided us with 5 quality and plentiful courses as well as a small carafe of wine for EUR13 per person. The courses were 1. soup (hot), 2. meats and terrines, 3. main plate of pork and vegetables, 4 fromage platter (huge and 5 types of cheese) and course number 5 was a very nice strawberry mousse. Throughout the meal the bread basket was also constantly refilled and the service was excellent. Looking at the tables around us some had opted for al la carte that also looked great (but couldn't match the great value of the menu de jour).

“Very tasty food, slightly odd presentation!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

We turned up, without a reservation, for dinner on a Wednesday night. We were lucky to be offered one of only two unreserved tables in the outdoor seating area - it is rightly a popular restaurant.

The food was well cooked and delicious, with some quirky "fine dining" presentation. The roquefort and nut salad was wonderful, and the confit duck was also very tasty indeed. I think the only round plates we saw all evening were for the bread - everything else was rectangular or even triangular and in various colours.

But the strangest selection was for the absolutely gorgeous chocolate mousse dessert. How it actually came was as three splodges on a brown plate, that could have been mistaken for the gift of a small animal were it not for the fruit garnish and the sprinkles that had been added to finish it off. It's a good job it tasted fantastic!

I've read the other reviews about the superb value of the lunchtime set menu. Dinner was more expensive at €21 for the basic menu, so with drinks we spent €32 per person in total. Good but not outstanding value.

Would we eat here again? Yes, the food is great and the service is friendly and relaxed.

“A great find in the a tiny hamlet close to Najac”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2014

We were staying nearby at a campsite and were recommended to eat here. It was one of the best recommendations we have been given. We ate from the set menu and the food was beautifully presented and delicious, one of the best meals we have had in France in a long time. The service was very friendly too. We hope to return to this area next year and will definitely make a point of returning to this restaurant.
Well worth the short drive out of Najac to experience a meal here

“Simply perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

If you enjoy great food and excellent wine in a beautiful location....this is it. The lunchtime fixed priced menu is unbelievable value for money, five course meal also wine and coffee included,all for 13 euros. In the evening we ate a la carte and the chef shows the highest quality cuisine, all the produce is fresh and locally sourced,... fabulous. The atmosphere is calm and relaxing, and the staff warm and friendly. If you have time go into the little shop, the chef has the best choice of wine and he will give you his recommendations depending on your taste pallet and budget.

“Great place for lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013

Great value set lunch with very good quality food. Service excellent and staff very attentive. It was full of locals which we thoroughly enjoyed, giving a good atmosphere. There was a pleasant terrace where we sat and had our coffee. We shall definitely go back.
