After some nice recommendation, especially in french, we have decided to visit the place for our final dinner at the end of a week's vacation in the valleys between the river Indre and the river Indrois. The decor is of a rustic family owned pub and the food is rustic french-style whole-hearted brasserie food. The plat du jour was duck... More

We had a lovely meal in this typically French restaurant. The menu was varied, and very good value. The food was tasty, well cooked, and beautifully presented. It felt like a really local, old fashioned but lovely place to eat. Highly recommended.
