First of all, the price is cheap. We enjoyed appetizers and cocktials on the patio with the owners and other guests at sunset, which was wonderful. Then we moved inside for dinner in the castle kitchen - also wonderful. The room itself was no frills...More

We stayed there and so enjoyed the complimentary tour. We saw many tourists on guided tour to this place and we can understand why. The place was beautiful and the guide was informative. It will be a great experience visiting this place.

I am sorry that I have not heard about this restaurant. Not sure if the host of Chateau de la Barden will be able to help. They seem to have been there for a long time.
