The set menu (two or three choices for each course) was great value at 25€. It's run by a husband and wife team: Eric Grao does front-of-house, Olga Grao cooks. The confit of rabbit delicately flavoured with cinnamon and star anise, and garnished with Agen prunes, was a triumph!

This is a lovely village location husband and wife team with a Vietnamese French flair. A healthy menu with fresh salads, Carnard and Steak Entrecote clear favourites, cooked to perfection and superb Pichet of local Red. Well priced, a little slow on service when busy, book in advance its imperative.

My family and I enjoyed a great meal, which was prepared and cooked in front of us. We received a warm welcome and friendly service. Time was taken to explain the menu to us and discuss the ingredients. We all felt unhurried and relaxed from beginning to end, in fact time just flew by! We fully intend to return next... More

Delicious food in a warm, unpretentious atmosphere. One of the most enjoyable meals we've had in France. The "queue du boeuf" was a particular stand out.

La Haute Vigne was a very lucky discovery for two hungry couples for a late lunch.The manager welcomed us warmly and took care to explain the menu. We all enjoyed selections from the four course "Menu du Jour" which provided an interesting and varied choice. We were delighted by the subtle blend of flavours and the exceptional quality of the...

We arrived in Castelfranc late, after finding all three restaurants in Albas closed, just as La Vigne Haute was about to close, but they fed the four of us a superb four-course lunch. I especially enjoyed my cod cooked in a spicy coconut sauce, and the creme brûlée, which was the best I have ever had. We enjoyed the ambience... More

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 came for a lunch to celebrate our wedding anniversary and we were not disappointed. Service impeccable and food outstanding - we had the fixed price menu at 25.50... More

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.
