“Perfect and well worth waiting for.”
Reviewed November 30, 2013

We had visited the Cloister and already decided to go to the Auberge for lunch.
We had the menu of the day and we were delighted to wait a little longer as everything is individually prepared by the chef.

For 33 euros we had:-

Asparagus soup with morelle mushrooms
Beef plus seven tiny vegetables
cheese platter


Smoked salmon salad
chicken a la crème with basil and the same vegetables
pear and almond tart


plus 2 glasses of excellent rose.

The owner was brisk and was 'running' all the time. We talked to her afterwards and she was charming and explained how difficult it was to have staff due to French law. She and her husband manage everything together and in our view do it very well.
This was our second visit, the other being about 8 years ago.

We strongly recommend this restaurant and we shall certainly visit again the next time we are in the area.

“Great value, great food”
Reviewed November 28, 2013 via mobile

I live nearby and have been 3 times in last few months,I leave feeling pleasantly full and impressed every time. The lady who's serves the food is lovely, great location and good value.
If you are in a rush then don't bother going, but it's worth the wait!

“Delightful auberge situated in the shadow of Moissac abbey”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

I have eaten here on a number of occasions over ten years. Four of us sat down to a quite delicious lunch today comprising.fresh local products of excellent quality and outstanding, well hung beef. Service is slow but diners are served in the order they arrived and diners should be prepared to enjoy some convivial conversation while they wait. It will be well worth the trouble and the wine list is equally well worth exploring and enjoying.
This is good, honest food cooked to perfection by a chef who knows exactly what he is doing.

“Good food but you have to wait”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

Lovely setting right by the famous Cloisters, hot evening under a tree, fantastic smells coming from the kitchen (which added to the frustration) the chef knows how to cook, i lived in the Perigord for many years but the Confit i ate here last night beat anything ive ever eaten before absolutely delicious!! the foie gras was gamey and perfectly made, so you cant fault it can you?

Oh yes you have to wait, and wait, and wait, o.k. good food takes time, you have to accept that but not 2 and half nearly three hours to finish 3 courses one of which was dessert/cheese.
Price is more than reasonable for the quality but we watched other couples dissapear without having anything to eat and another couple pay for their entree and go into the square to eat a main at another restaurant.

Such a shame because the food really was better than any other restaurant close to the church.

“Excellent Value In A Stunning Setting”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

Stunning setting next to the Abbey at Moissac (and almost worth visiting for that reason alone)We went for lunch and chose from the menu at 13.50 euro, the food was far better than the price indicated – an absolute bargain. We both started with a mushroom and asparagus soup which was one of the best things we ate all holiday. Partner had fish and I had beef for the plat principal. Both simple but using excellent quality ingredients and beautifully cooked. Only slight let down was an apple tart for desert which was a bit ordinary – but for such a reasonable price I wasn’t complaining. If you are visiting Moissac then definitely eat here, but make sure you book ahead as it’s only a small place and does fill up quickly.
