So our evening began well, attentive waiters at 7:30 pm when we arrived. A limited menu which was confused by one waiter declaring what was available and another saying not! Only one veal chop available at the beginning of service? So my choice duck carpaccio...More

Visited La Tupina for the first time having seen Rick Stein's long weekends. It was the hottest day ever in French history, so it was very quiet! We had the 3-course set lunch menu at €18. Radishes, tomatoes and pate as a complimentary start, followed...More

This is a frequently recommended restaurant. It seems to be well regarded by locals. I'm not sure why. It has been in the same location and operated by the same family through several generations. We found the staff welcoming and accommodating. The main attraction appears...More
