“Disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

It felt like they were trying to hard to be creative espcially with the starters which were rather bland. Main courses were better. Slow service but pretty good value.

“Pretty good value for a splendid lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

By no means the cheapest lunch in Pezenas - but............. The cooking was just divine, the menu exciting and interesting and the staff lovely. Book or you may not get in - or you could be in the area with a fine view of the car-park.

“A great find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

Modern French food executed to a high standard and accompanied by an interesting wine list including a wide range of "natural wines". The skewer of duck hearts was exquisite and the beef for sharing between two was cooked to perfection for me, blackened on the outside but just barely warm on the inside ("saignant" for those who like it like that), and wonderfully tender. The only slight disappointment was on the cheeseboard where there weren't really any "strong" cheeses or particular local specialties.

No Michelin stars (yet) and not a restaurant that is ever likely to find itself on a list of the world's best restaurants but still very good indeed (and could easily command one Michelin star in London).

“Good quality restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

It is not always easy to find a good quality restaurant in Pezenas. We have eaten here a couple of times and have been impressed with the quality of the cooking and presentation of the dishes. The decor is not brilliant and the outside area could do with improving, on one occasion we were situated next to a parking area for a business next door. The service was good and the staff friendly and efficient.Prices were fair. A meal for four people, not incluing wine or dessert was 128 euros.

“First Class”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

Tucked away just off the main thoroughfare, but well worth tracking down. First class food - with nice presentation and overall good value. Above the Pezenas norm and worth a visit.
