In this case the turbot tasted of ammonia...it was off. I didn't even actually complain just commented when the waiter came to clear the uneaten main course. No apology was offered, the waiter insisted it was bought only 2 days before. To be honest the rest of the meal was good, but bad fish tends to wipe that memory away.... More

We have promised ourselves we would try this restaurant for a long time. It was just the two of us for much of the meal which we didn't mind as we were enjoying the food. I had the €29 Agape menu and my husband chose the €43 Découverte. I gather their is a new propriétaire who is also the chef.... More

We ate well there a few years ago , well attended to by Mom while Pop cooked. Walked past it today to find that the business has terminated. Saw something on the internet saying that they are setting up in Marennes on the coast.

Tripadvisor recommended this restaurant, I’m very pleased we decided to go! We wanted somewhere special for a birthday lunch but hadn’t managed to book anywhere. Having been turned away from a few choices we decided to try Agape. On first inspection they were fully booked but with some guile Madame expertly found a spare table (I don’t know how as... More

We hadn't been for a couple of years but the set lunch here was still an excellent experience. Charming dining room and service (English spoken if necessary) and they took my husband's gluten allergy in their stride. Wine by the glass was no problem.

So good was our experience the last time that my wife and I went back for the 19.50 euros set lunch (no choice but menu is on display outside). We started with a feta and chorizo salad. I thought it would be boring. Far from it; I cleaned every drop of the place with the excellent bread provided! The main... More

This restaurant is just around the corner from the main square so does lack some of the buzz. A busy Friday night in Angouleme but only 6 in the restaurant was a little worrying but the menu looked great so we gave it a go and were pleased we did. You can sop end a lot of money here if... More

Don't panic - the restaurant front is completely different from that shown in the photograph. The restaurant is now very modern in a simplistic way decorated in black and white with pictures of 1950/60 racing cars from the September street race, known as Le Circuit des Remparts, on the walls. The décor has a very sophisticated (if simple) feel. My... More

Second time at Agape... it was my wife's birthday so we had made a reservation despite it being a Tuesday. Madame was cherful and welcoming as ever whilst M Le Chef gave us a cheery wave from the kitchen. We had a couple of house cocktails (rasberry juice, cognac and champagne... utterly gorgeous!) and opted for the Inspirations Du Chef... More

Four of us arrived for lunch on a Wednesday with a reservation. We were the only people there and were shown to a table on the first floor.The three course menu had no choice, courgette soup, magret de canard and crème bruile. Not very imaginative. The food was quite good but not exceptional. The wine starts at 20 plus euros... More
