Visited at lunch time today and, whilst I appreciate it was Tour D'e France day in the village, your restaurant was half empty yet you could not find me a table for two. The management of this hotel has really deteriated over the past few years and it was the manager who was unable to seat us. The lady who... More

As soon as you are inside you forget you're next to a supermarket. Lovely food and very friendly staff. This is as child friendly as a restaurant not set up for children can be. You will need to keep your kids at the table but the staff were great with the kids.

The sun was out and we just turned up for a lunchtime drink but the plat du jour looked so tempting that we had no choice but to indulge once again. In total we ate here on four separate occasions during our two week stay and every time lunch exceeded expectations, beautiful food presented in true fine dining style and... More

However L'Echappee Belle offered a warm and tasteful environment and on top of that a wonderful menu du jour with some terrific quirky tastes, especially the... More

Such a shame and this spoiled a bit the celebrations! No response to my second... More

Great cooking, beautifully presented and so much better than any other local restaurants, particularly 'les Oliviers' across the square which is appalling.

The Foie Gras is infamous in this region so you must try this here, its to die for. All food is freshly prepared, so us Brits have to remember to dine in France is a food experience not a meal, so to be patient with serving times. I absolutely love this area with the sunflowers this time of year. So... More
