“And a view too”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

We turned up without a reservation and they could not have been more helpful. We were also lucky enough to be there on the night they had live music which was not at all intrusive and very entertaining.
The menu was excellent without giving one too much choice and for a dinner we had the 27 euro choice. With our pre-dinner drinks there was a tasty taste of a version of prawn cocktail. Then a small but gorgeous cream of courgette soup. The main meal was just the right amount as was the delightful pud. We decided to have coffee there and along came some delicious petite fours. All in all the food was "yummy" and the service was quietly and efficiently done.
We had an excellent evening and would not hesitate in recommending this restaurant which overlooks the fast flowing river.

“Loved it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

What a lovely surprise in a modest little town! Elegant modern decor with a great view over the Garonne. We had a set menu with two choices per course which was irreproachable. Fantastic value for money. Every course was a perfect balance of flavours and textures, presented in an artistic way: broad bean and tomato salad with smoked duck breast, halibut with a gorgeous fennel puree, and an amazing pineapple dessert. I'd visit Tonneins again just to go to this restaurant.

“Complex but delicate modern menu, friendly service, 49 euros for 2 plus drinks.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

I chose this restaurant as it looked promising from reviews, perfect for a relaxed dinner with my wife.

Modern smart interior with river views. Friendly welcoming staff. Choice of fixed price menus.

We had the 24.50 menu which offered a choice of two starters, mains and deserts. These were supplemented with an amuse bouche before and after the starter, and petit fours.

We were offered a choice of fresh baked rolls with starters and mains.

The food was all freshly prepared. The dishes were quite 'Masterchefy' but not too fussy.

You can see into the kitchens from the street which is quite reassuring. I get the impression that these guys work with pride.

The dishes were complex but not over rich and the key ingredients were not overwhelmed by other flavours. I chose a Gambas starter and a fillet of dorade main course. Seasoning and cooking was spot on.

A dining experience not to forget . Food and staff were first class, we felt like we were dining in a chique city restaurant . Staff were friendly and helpful and the food was good value and delicious , I will certainly return there on my next visit to Lot et Garonne.
