Le Vinois has a good reputation in the area so we expected it to be quite expensive. We were astonished to find a inviting, gastronomic lunch for 17,50 € to 19,.50 €.
Nothing was a problem (mixing lunch menu with à la carte) and we enjoyed excellent food and efficient and pleasant service.
It couldn't be faulted.
We'll be back.

There was a spectacular lack of care and attention to our dining experience: Foie gras arrived with a sellophane wrapper, shellfish soup was full of grit/sand, food was cold. Fillet Steak was 1cm thick (euros 36) and impossible to present au point as it was too thin. Altogether a poor dining experience. The front of house staff were attentive but the proprietor/chef was distinctly more interested in his friends than patrons. This was an expensive mistake (Euros 240) that left us feeling ripped off. We live locally to the Vinois but have resolved never to return and never to recommend this restaurant.

Voisin (anagram of vinois) was running a 1 * Michelin restaurant when he decided to return to his roots and in particular the house of his mother..

The star has gone, the fuss with it too, but the food is outstanding, and remarkably tasty an superbly prepared. Price is much lover than a 1* restaurant, but the food not.

Nice wine list with lots of choice in local Cahors wines, very affordable.

This restaurant is hidden away in the countryside near Cahors - but well signposted. The drive is more than worth it. From the Menu du Jour to the tasting menu there is superb cooking, well presented and at a sensible price. We have eaten there several times and attended the cookery course. We have never had a meal that fell below a high standard, whether on the terrac, or inside. The wine list contains the work of many of Cahors' best vignerons, but try the reds from neighbouring Plat Faisant.

My husband and I have had the pleasure of enjoying the culinary work of Chef Jean-Claude Voisin at Le Vinois restaurant in Caillac and on Monsieur Voisin's visit the the U.S. No matter where he is cooking, this talented master creates edible works of art that are delicious but no pretentious. Caillac, where Le Vinois is located, is a lovely little village northwest of Cahors. If you are in the Lot, it is worth a trip.

The contemporary decor of the restaurant is a great foil for the traditional area cuisine. Our last meal there was in 2008. Our amuse bouche included two small and slender glasses of a cream appetizer soup and salmon with avocado. Our next course was ravioli pockets in a garlic sauce. Our main dish was a duck confit with whipped potatoes and a cabbage leaf stuffed with vegetables and folded to look like a large Brussels sprout.

Our dessert was a moist and crustless tarte tatin with a lemony-tang and a zig-zag of banana-y sauce spiked with ginger. The ice cream was light and fruity and topped with two toffee crisps.

Next came another unexpected treat: A small jar - yes, I said jar - of applesauce topped with a crust of rich chocolate.

Jean Claude and wife Elizabeth are a charming host and hostess. Le Vinois is open for lunch and dinner. It is part of a hotel, also owned by the Voisins.
