Well worth the return visit

Returning to the area after a 3 year break we had to return to see if this restaurant was as good as previous visits. Well, a resounding 'yes' is the answer.

We had tried to book elsewhere but remembered that we had previously enjoyed our several meals here before. Although their USP is an open brazier for steaks, magrets and aiguillettes of duck, we went for the prix fixe menu which included plenty of foie gras, and were not disappointed. Wine was good, local Cahors, and definitely cheaper than similar restaurants... More

We were a family group of 7 with 3 being kids. Really tasty food, all plates completely clean. Service friendly and swift enough. You really tasted the food had been cooked from fresh ingredients. Nothing too complicated just great taste. Loved it.

Good food but appallingly slow service from this restaurant run and served by just 2 people. All food appears to be cooked over an open BBQ in the restauarant, giving every dish a smoky taste and smell.( 1 & a half hours from ordering main course to table ! )

We ate at this restaurant on June 25, and 26, 2015 at the recommendation of our B&B. On the first night we had the salade nordique, a lovely fresh salad with salmon and shrimp, then the rabbit leg confit, which was really delicious and a lovely change from duck! We decided to come back the next night and reserved a... More

Like others, we enjoyed a dinner here while traveling around France, and it stands out as a highlight. The menu was a great mix of traditional French, with Asian alternates that I wish I had another night to try. Choosing was difficult, but the grilled canard was outstanding, as was the fois gras cooked two ways. Eric suggested wines to... More

We have dined at this restaurant on a number of occasions and we have never been disappointed. Eric and Olga make you so welcome and the food they serve matches the quality of service. We love the fact that the food here is slightly different from the norm in France and this is why we go back. If the Oxtail... More
