Booked this restaurant for 7.30pm Friday night and when we arrived doors were still shut. There were 3 other cars in carpark we assumed staff and waited 5 mins. Doors remained locked so we left and found a suoerb restaurant instead.

My wife and I had lunch here on Sunday, May 19, 2013. We had just visited the caves at Font de Gaume (well worth seeing) and had an afternoon time to visit a different cave with pre-historic "line drawings" that was about 5 Km away....More
