As always a pleasant atmosphere, a super seating area outside in the prettiest of French villages and the food is excellent. Make a point of visiting this restaurant, although advisable to book, as always busy.

We've eaten here on several occasions over the years, but on this occasion we came to the conclusion that it is over priced. We wanted to eat outside but were not allowed because they said they expected rain. Being from Ireland means we have a pretty good idea of when it is and is not going to rain. We tried... More

Very nice meal. Very busy. Obviously a very popular restaurant. Look forward to trying the plat du jour next time. Ensure you book if you plan to arrive at 1 pm. A most enjoyable experience.

The Argentor really is a classic French village restaurant, much beloved by both English and French customers in almost equal measure for the fantastic value, warm atmosphere and wonderful food served herein this very pretty village. In the winter the soup is kept hot over the open fire, where steaks and duck are also cooked to your liking, while in... More

We visited Nanteuil en Vallée, since our neighbours own a little house there. I still wonder how they managed to find the place, but it is really a nice village. In the evening we had dinner in the Auberge. The terrace was full of people and luckily there was still one table for 4 persons available. In no time we... More

Nanteuil is a very pretty, tiny village, in the middle of nowhere - and L'Auberge is a proper village restaurant. Delicious home-prepared foie gras, and very good beef. Clearly they make good use of local ingredients. Nothing nicer on a summer's day than to sit on the terrace and enjoy a good lunch with a nice localish bottle. Quality ingredients,... More

Nanteuil En Vallée is not really on our patch, we used to eat their quite often when business took us to Ruffec and a weekday lunch was a simple Menu. So, out and about on Sunday, we hardly gave it a thought, remembering the lack of terrace. Well, of course, we were wrong, beautiful terrace over the road, attentive staff... More

We have dined here five or six times now, outside, inside in the bar area and in the restaurant to the rear and on all occasions the staff have been exemplary the food has been outstanding and the atmosphere is wonderful. The only time we questioned something was a bottle of white wine, the manager exchanged the bottle without fuss... More
