“Art gastronomique!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

We enjoyed a Saturday evening dinner with local medaille d'or wine, in rustic surroundings. The menu was very biased towards lovers of meat but there were two fish choices. The food was imaginatively presented and cooked to perfection. We admired the presentation so much that we did not eat immediately, but marvelled at the originality. The portions of meat and fish were generous, not so the vegetables. The mixed dessert plate was exquisite, with enough for two to share. In all, a delightful gastronomic experience!

“The place for steak lovers. Vegetarians beware”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

We tried very hard to find a great restaurant in this part of France and were bemused to find a little gem in a very very narrow backstreet. We had a big car and almost did not get out - check ahead, don't just drive in.
The Steak is the specialty here, as suggested by the cattle pictures as soon as you enter. Don;t expect a broad range of meat dishes are there is none.
The signature steak dish is superb. The chef interestingly makes a spectacle of introducing you to the dish and a big fuss is made when it is served.
Very entertaining.
The restaurant would be a great location for a romantic dinner (but not for vegetarians)

“Great lemon tart”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

The restaurnt is a very cozy place, service was very friendly, and the prices were very reasonable. The chef/owner shows you your cut of meat before grilling it on an open chimney stove. The lemon tart a must.

“Wgat a wonderful surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012

We were driving back to the North from the South and faced a huge traffic queue and decided to drive the more scenic route National. As usual, we turned to Tripadvisor on the mobile and were directed for lunch to this Auberge. It is wonderful. The pretty and tiny perched village is lovely. The restaurant is a great suprise in that the interior is approached by a small courtyard with overhang terrace. If the weather is good, this is ideal. We did not have enough time to do justice to the wine but had a wonderful steak - brought to the table before cooking and then served just as ordered. This is a must return location.
