“Par excellence!”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

This place deserves a write up in English because it deserves to be better known! We went because the other 'troglodyte' restaurant near our accommodation, where English is spoken, was closed on Tuesdays. Our B&B host warned us that no one spoke English at L'Oubliette and they don't have an English menu, but we got by with our broken French. And what a meal it was! Plating, flavour combinations far above and beyond what you expect in an out of the way restaurant in a small town. Excellent wine selection including an excellent range by the half bottle (a good option for a driving couple). If you don't speak French, brush up on some restaurant vocab, or take an iPhone with food dictionary app, and go!
