Christmas dinner- privileged menu item - Poulet De Bresse- So fortunate to score a reservation due to the local wine shop in Sarlat who knew the owners and managed to get us in. We not only had a great table but SUPER attentive staff! Not...overboard, but made a memorable Christmas evening in Sarlat for everyone. Each course was inventive, amazing and layered beautifully as each was presented. The staff couldn’t have been better- suggested crisp Champagne to start. Dinner wine was recommended by the owner; a white Voignier/Chardonnay blend. Perfect compliment to all the courses. Of course, local to the region The evening was capped off with Armagnac! Photos tell the story from starter to dessert!!!More

Having lived in France for many years. I enjoy the experience of eating out on many occassions but this was certainly an experience to forget from a personal point of view. I felt very uncomfortable from the start and found the staff generally very disinterested...and just going through the motions like robots. I felt like I was on a conveyor belt and they wanted to get rid of me as quickly as possible. As soon as I had finished they were removing my plate before I had put my eating utensils down. Avoid at all costs and a very miserable experience and definitely not one that I would wish to repeat. I can safely say my worst experience in France. The restaurants loss as my wife is a vegetarian and i was interested in trying it with a view to the future for a trip with some friends.More

We were lucky to chance upon this first class but unpretentious restaurant in Niort town centre. We had the menu de jour, it was delicious and beautifully presented. This restaurant goes the extra mile, serving homemade bread rolls infused with lemon, fish garnished with citrus...molecules, perfectly cooked veg. Service was also very good, pleasant and attentive. Highly recommendedMore

We made reservation for diner. We were not disappointed. Good food, the taste was ok for the most dishes. The lamb was perfect. The waffle was mediocre. The weather was good, so we had a table on the rooftop terrace.

Based on TA reviews, we chose this restaurant on a Saturday evening in June. The restaurant wasn’t particularly busy, so we could eat outside at ground level, inside the restaurant, or on the en haut first floor terrace. The terrace was our choice, and was...a good choice. Fine view over the Square below. The staff were extremely helpful, we chose the vegetarian menu for my friend, and with some help, a gluten-free menu for myself. Both menus were excellent, and a bottle of Blaye Bordeaux at €25 was a worthwhile addition. Total bill for a very enjoyable meal was €89.00. Money well spent. For location, staff, and value-for-money this restaurant deserves a 4 out of 5 Mark - 5 our 5 would have been in order only if we weren’t charged for eating! An enjoyable evening, to be recommended.More

Looking for a quality lunch we took a chance as the menu looked good. What a revelation! Staff were excellent, friendly but very professional. Ambiance was good. The menu "Tradition" was superlative and excellent value.

Located on the quiet side of the Place de la Brèche. Book a table beforehand, or you might be disappointed. Ask for a table on the terrace (one flight up), from where there is a view of the square. From start to finish the food...was a delight for the palate and to the eyes. Very friendly, helpful professional waiters. To top it off, you know how you often have to wait for your bill and again for the credit card machine or your change? Not here. We were asked to just go downstairs when we were ready to leave. Two taps on the touchscreen, and there was our bill. The menu contained meat, fish, and vegetarian dishes. I wish we had something like this in my home town.More

What can you expect having diner in a country where food is served of excellent quality. This restaurant serves food of the season. The staff is friendly, and even talks English. If you are in niort and look for a good place to eat this...is the place. Please book otherwise it could turnout in a disappointing experience.More

We have a 2nd house in France and often pop into Niort. Had lunch today and have to say the food was fantastic! My veal was superb and my wife's cod was equally good. Desert was superb again - we both had mousse with caramel...- to die for. Great service and an all round lovely experience!More

We were exploring the region and stayed at a nearby hotel. We had seen the reviews for this place on Tripadvisor, so we decided to try it. It was an amazing meal. I had a dish that featured beef two ways. One part was braised...beef with sweet potato puree and the other was a filet. It was absolutely delicious. I can't remember what my husband had since I was too busy with my own dish. I'm certain you can choose blindly and it will be great. The desserts were works of art! Just go and try anything on the menu.More

My wife and I (and the dog) went here for dinner during a 1 night stop-over in Niort. Dogs welcome (of course - it's France !), the service was very good, even with my broken French, and the food was fantastic. Don't be shy if...you don't speak great French. We interpreted the menu with Google Translate. Very easy, and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Definitely worth a visit.More
