We were told to come back in 20 minutes quite abruptly despite seats being available. Gave them the benefit of the doubt and went back. They put us in a horrible corner seat despite better ones being available. Another couple sat next to us after 5 minutes and were served immediately. After another 10 minutes we asked to be served...

With no opportunity to read reviews we set out to explore the options for an evening meal in St Flour. The town was extremely quiet and the few cafes and restaurants we passed were closed. After walking past this restaurant it was apparent that, apart from the 2 places overlooking the car park, this was the only place to eat... More

We had a wonderful lunch here, with an inventive menu well presented and beautifully cooked. A three course menu for 23€ was excellent value for money and the restaurant is rustic and charming. Two points let it down for me, one is that one of the servers was surly and dismissive, and positively huffy when we asked to order wine... More

Friendly and efficient service, an attractive range of choices on the bistrot formula, and all of it delicious (I had the civet de lièvre). Eating this well, in charming surroundings, was a real pleasure - for a very modest price;

We had a terrific meal here outside on the terrace. As a largish group no one was disappointed - in fact many baddies he'd that were stand outs. Worth coming to Saint Flour for!

Our landlady recommended this restaurant and we are so glad we went, despite having planned another outing. Every dish had the most amazingly delicious flavours. The 23 euro menu had incredible sounding dishes, some a bit scary..like tripe on toast...We chose different dishes and shared to get the full experience! Everything was out of this world! The restaurant is tiny,... More

Tripoux on toast topped with grilled cheese as a starter, then venison civet with little potatoes followed by bilberry tart. The flavours were outstanding, good presentation, generous portions. The restaurant was full when we arrived at 1 p.m.but the servive was efficient. A good meal in a fascinating town.

We liked the look of the menu at Geneviève's, and the fact that the restaurant had a panoramic view over the lower town. Most of the local dishes are not to our taste but we had a delicious salad starter and then gallettes, savoury pancakes. They were delicious and surprisingly filling, and are offered with a good range of tasty... More
